Description: NO RESERVE Anacreon. Anakreontos Teiou (graece)... praefixo commentario et variant. lect. Parmae: in aedibus palatinis, 1791.

In-16° (mm 102x68). Pagine [4], 120, 122, [2]. Al frontespizio medaglia incisa su rame con ritratto dell'Autore, al recto di c. [π]2 ritratto calcografico del dedicatario José Nicolas de Azara. Poche lievissime arrossature. Legatura coeva in marocchino con restauri, piatti con impressioni in oro, titoli in oro su tassello al dorso, tagli dorati, contropiatti e sguardie in seta azzurra.

Dopo le prime edizioni di Anacreonte, di grande formato e datate rispettivamente 1784 e 1785, in cui Bodoni aveva offerto un saggio dei suoi nuovi caratteri greci, nel 1791 il tipografo regio ripropose due impressioni del poeta greco in due diversi formati, in octavo e in sedicesimo. Questa seconda, cui appartiene il presente esemplare, è definita da De lama una "graziosa edizioncella". De Lama II, 66; Brooks, 421; Giani, 16; Mingardi, Edizioni bodoniane, 106.

16° (102x68 mm). [4], 120, 122, [2] pages. On title page copper medal with portrait of the Author, on the recto of fol. [π]2 engraved portrait of the dedicatee José Nicolas de Azara. Some light foxing. Contemporary morocco with repairs, gilt-tooled decorations on the covers, gilt title on littering piece on the spine, gilt edges, azure silk pastedowns and flyleaves.

After the first editions of Anacreon, of big format and dated rispectively 1784 and 1785, in which Bodoni offered an essay of his new greek types, in 1791 the royal printer revisited two pritings of the greek poet in two different formats, in octavo and in sedicesimo. This second edition, to which belongs this copy, is considered by De Lama a "graziosa edizioncella". De Lama II, 66; Brooks, 421; Giani, 16; Mingardi, Edizioni bodoniane, 106.
