Career of Filippo from its obscure beginning
with the artist Antonio del Pollainolo, through his
years as a stationier in parternship with his
brother Leantonio, and them as an increasingly
succesful humanist publisher with a variety of
editors in his employ. The major part of his
output was classical texts, first Greek and
then mainly Latin. For works in Italian were published,
but these include Dante's Divina Commedie,
Sannazaro's Arcadia and editions of Boccaccio,
Petrarch and Bembo. Filippo's firm played an
important role in shaping the intellectual history
of Florence and even Europe.

Partnership with brother Lucantonio - 1491-1517.
