Moria. Venet. Ald. 1515;" brown marbled endpapers; gilt and gauffered edges. Small blue and white paper shelf-mark label in lower left corner of upper board; large armorial bookplate on upper pastedown of Leonardo Vitetti, Italian diplomat who served as a delegate to the U.N. from 1956 to 1958 ("Biblioteca del conte Leonardo Vitetti, Ambasciatore d'Italia"), with his manuscript shelf-mark. Gold-stamped red leather bookplate on front endleaf of T. Kimball Brooker, well-known Aldine collector from the Chicago area, featuring a bisected circle containing his initials "TK" and "B", surmounted by a double cross. Bookplated "In memory of Robert H.
