Incunabula at Vassar
A Selection of Items from the Exhibition << PREVIOUS | | EXHIBITION INDEX | | NEXT>>
Caesar, Julius. Works, 1471.
Venice: Nicolas Jenson, 1471.
|Nicolas Jenson printed one of the earliest and most beautiful editions of Caesar. We note here especially the remarkable clarity and simplicity of the printer's Roman typeface, which drew its inspiration from etchings on Roman monuments. On this opening page we are also treated to a wonderful illuminated initial and border.
