      A HISTORY & BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE GIUNTI (JUNTA) PRINTING FAMILY IN SPAIN 1526
      - 1628, COVERING THE JUNTA (GIUNTI) PRESS AND THE IMPRENTA REAL IN BURGOS,
      SALAMANCA & MADRID WITH A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SEVERAL GIUNTI PRESSES IN
      VENICE, FLORENCE AND LYON AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE PRESS OF JUAN BAUTISTA
      VARESIO IN BURGOS, VALLADOLID & LERMA

      By William Pettas

      The first edition of this monumental work opens with a 170 page history of
      the Giunti publishing family that covers their achievements in Italy, Spain
      and France from 1489 to 1628. As the great rivals of the Aldine Press, the
      Giunti aggressively captured large portions of the lucrative governmental
      and Church's printing business. From their base in Florence and Venice,
      family members set up printing presses in Burgos, Salamanca, Madrid,
      Valladolid, Lerma and Lyons. In Spain they became printers to the most
      powerful King in the world and established "The Imprenta Real," changing
      their name to "Junta." The comprehensive, 700 page bibliography of the books
      they published while in Spain is annotated with more than 140 wood cuts of
      their ornate title page art, imprints, and other identifying ornaments. The
      text also features the genealogical charts of the family, library holdings,
      and a documentary chronology.

      The author, William Pettas, has researched this early printing family for
      over twenty years, and this is his second work on this important clan. A
      very readable and valuable contribution to the history of the book and an
      important bibliography and reference work. Sales Rights: Worldwide.
      Available in September 2004.

      GREEK CIVILIZATION THROUGH THE EYES OF TRAVELLERS AND SCHOLARS

      By Leonora Navari

      In one of the most elegant annotated bibliographies ever created, Leonora
      Navari the compiler in association with Konstantinos Staikos, a leading
      authority on library history and bibliographies, have created an
      indispensable aid to any scholar of Greek culture. This work documents the
      renowned collection of Dimitris Contominas whose library was built with the
      goal of collecting every book by scholars and visitors to Greece from the
      fifteenth to the mid-twentieth century. Each book is completely described
      bibliographically, with pagination, collations of signatures, description of
      illustrations, and bindings. The notes are varied and include information
      on printing history, biographical details of the authors and illustrators,
      the significance of the work, and its connection with the historical bias of
      its time as well as a listing of selected holdings. The historical
      introduction is bilingual in English and Greek with all the annotations in
      English. There are over 200 rare illustrations most in color and multiple
      indexes.

      SIMON DE COLINES, AN ANNOTATED CATALOGUE OF 230 EXAMPLES OF HIS PRESS
      1520-1546

      By Fred Schreiber

      First edition, limited to 750 copies. The first true Renaissance printer,
      Colines worked with the finest French book decorators and type designers to
      transform the French book. By using the format pioneered by Aldus Manutius,
      his press (1520-1546) published reasonably priced "pocket" classics, making
      them affordable by students and popularizing italic and cursive types in
      France. Colines holds the distinction of having prepared the first critical
      text of the Greek New Testament, the first printed in France. He produced
      the earliest accented Greek type in France, fifteen years prior to the Grecs
      du Roi. In 1528, de Colines introduced an elegant cursive, derived from
      Arrighi, followed by a smaller italic based on the Aldine. The 230 books
      described in this work, one-third of Colines's actual production, illustrate
      de Colines's types, ornamental initials, printer devices and title borders.
      A catalogue of the books published and facsimiles of two of Colines's
      publisher catalogues are also included. Designed by W. Thomas Taylor.
      Illustrated.
