Title: Aristotelis de arte rhetorica Libri Tres. Carolo Sigonio Interprete, 1565
Author: Aristotle; Carlo Sigonio
Publisher: Bononiae, Ex officina Alexandri Benatii
Condition: Good

A mid 16th century edition of Aristotle’s treatise, The Art of Rhetoric. As Aristotle has been generally credited with developing the basics of the system of rhetoric that, and influencing the development of rhetorical theory, The Art of Rhetoric is regarded by most rhetoricians as one of the most significant works on persuasion ever written. The work is broken down into 3 books, with the first book providing a general overview and working definition of rhetoric, as well as the various types and contents of rhetoric. Book 2 discusses the three uses of persuasion an orator uses as their foundation, the ethos, pathos, and logos. Lastly, Book 3 introduces elements of style and arrangement.

There is lining used to bookmark sections in the margins, and several annotations as well.

One vellum bound volume in octavo, 197 pages

On note of condition, this volume is in good shape, with rubbing and wear to the binding, namely to the corners and the front board lower edge. The binding is exposed at the inner hinges, though holding. There is some staining and light foxing throughout.
