Aldine Editions

Editions of the Greek and Latin classics, published and printed under the superintendence of Aldo Manuzio, his father-in-law Andrea of Asolo, and his son Paolo (1490–1597); most of them in small octavo, and all noted for their accuracy. The father invented the type called italics, once called Aldine, and first used in printing Virgil, 1501.
