Title

Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, ubi humana omnia non nisi somnium esse docet.

Author
  • Colonna, Francesco -1527 [author]
Published
  • [Venetiis] : [In ædibus Aldi Manutii], accuratissime [Mense decembri M.ID. ]
Physical description
[464] pages : illustrations (woodcuts) ; 31 cm.
Notes
  • Roman type (Proctor 5574); 38-39 lines.
  • Illustrations: 170 woodcuts of various sizes: ornamental initials of three styles in two sizes, strapwork on shaded background, and plain on floral backgrounds, and three large initials--P, strapwork, -- L, floral, -- E, interlaced branches. "As regards the authorship of the wonderful illustrations the sig. nature .b. on the third has led to their being attributed to numerous celebrated artists, but it is now fairly well recognized that celebrated artists in Italy did not concern themselves with bookwork, and that .b. is probably the signature of a woodcutter's workshop. Attempts to make a list of other books illustrated by the same hand are baffled by the dual personality which has to be dealt with. The present writer is inclined to doubt whether the same designer and the same illustrator worked together in any other book." Dyson Perrins 139: see also Josef Poppelreuter. Der anonyme Meister des Poliphilo, Strassburg, 1904.
