(Bologna: Caligola Bazalieri, 1501). Quarto. (94)ff. This edition is based on the version published by Caligola Bazalieri’s brother, Bazaliero Bazalieri, in July 1491. The text is Ovid’s Heroides, a collection of imaginary letters written from ancient mythological heroines to the lovers who abandoned or mistreated them, including Penelope, Dido, Ariadne, Phaedra, Medea, and Sappho. Printed in Roman type, with wood-engraved initials. Caligola Bazalieri began his career as a printer by working at his brother’s press, and he printed his own title in 1492. It is rare to come across any of Caligola Bazalieri’s editions: seventeen of the forty-two books that he published are known only as single copies or are “ghost” volumes, only known through bibliographies. This edition of the Heroides is unknown to all bibliographies and unrecorded in any institution. Bound in eighteenth-century red half morocco by Carlo Zehe. Spine in six compartments, gilt-titled in one, and with gilt floral decorations in the other five compartments. Some small spots of biopredation to spine, and minor dampstaining, else fine. Some contemporary notes and corrections written in the margins. From the library of Giacomo Filippo Durazzo, a Genoese nobleman. Item #24907
