Summary
Aldus enjoyed widespread fame as a scholar-printer-publisher. Aldus' mission in life was less to display his own erudition than to serve the scholarly needs of his contemporaries, whether they were young students, educated readers, learned academics or distinguished authors. To this end Aldus accomplished much; his contribution to the promotion of classical languages and literature was a considerable one, and was recognized as such by his contemporaries. This volume contains editions of Ancient Latin authors, Humanistic authors, and others.--
