- First authenticated production appears to be the Valerius Maximus of 18 June 1482. THe partnership of Jacobus Britannicus with the brothers was dissolved at the end of 1484 after having executed some 9 editions + thence forward to the end of the century the brothers continued to print alone. - The brothers de Gregoris of Forlivio were important Venetian printers until 1503. - Contains excerpts from Metaphysica, Libri physicorum, De Coele et Mundo, De Somnio etc. - These dicta have been set forth, by Brother Thophilus of Ferrara according to the expositions of St. Thomas Aauinas + other scholars + a note on the last page tells us that the book was brought out at the expense of Alexander Calcedonius of Pisaurum, a merchant. There is a further statement to the effect that a special license was obtained from the Doge, + that anyone found pritning this book in the confines of the Venetian State would be mulcted + suffer confiscation of the entire edition: probably one of the first instances of publisher's copyright. - Ferrariis - a follower + admirer of S. Thomas Aquinus - a Dommician - lived 2nd part of the 15th C. - The very extensive table lists about 2000 terms + gives their reference in Aristotle's work. A4-G8

Issued in a smaller, more convienent format than its predecessors, the Geneva Bible was the 1st English Bible to use verse divisions + the 1st to be printed in Roman type. Except in the New Testament where the influence of Tyndale predominates, the Geneva contributed more to the King James Bible than did any other single version. It quickly became the cheap, popular version of the Scriptures; for well over 1/2 a century this was the Bible most read by Englishmen + most often reprinted. HEHL 40221 - "A Prologue or Preface made by Thomas Cranmer" THe Scond Book of the Chronicles begins Nn ii (of 6) folio 212. ends - Qqi (of 6) folio 229.
