Title: Hystoria de vitis pontificum perjucundae diligenter recognita et nunc tantum integre impressa, 1505
Author: Bartolomeo Platina
Publisher: Paris, Impensis François Regnault
Condition: Very Good

An uncommon early 16th century edition of Platina’s History of the Popes, up to Paul II, initially published in 1476, and here, supplemented up to Pius III. This is the first of two parts, containing the entire papal history, the second missing being a smaller 128 leaf section containing smaller works by Platina. The title woodcut shows Platina writing in front of eight popes.

USTC records 24 existing copies of this edition in libraries.

One rebound volume in 12mo, CCCLII+(4) leaves

This volume is in very good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the rebind, the early spine re-laid, being fragmentary. There is heavier wear and damage to the title page. There is some staining throughout, mostly to the upper margin of the pages.
