Aulus Persius Flaccus:

Satyrae cum quinque commentariis.

[Paris], Jodocus Badius Ascensius, 1523. Folio. 31,5 x 20 cm. [16] + 164 leaves. Title within elaborate woodcut border and incorporating a large vignette dated 1520 featuring Ascensius’s printing press.

Old half calf, rebacked, sides worn. Endleaves somewhat soiled and creased, title-leaf a little trimmed at top and fore-edge. Old annotation in ink to foot of title-page, bookplates of Sir Henry Mainwaring and of Prebendary James Fraser. Internally very fine, clean and crisp.

Adams P737. Renouard, vol. III. p. 153-55.

Edited by Ascensius, the scholar-printer, who was one of five to add his commentary. He incorporated a printing press into his printer's mark, using a number of variants over the course of his career.
