OFFERING: The rare 'first full edition', far closer textually to the work we know today than any previous edition and universally praised for its accuracy, and compilation of the best of Renaissance textual criticism and commentary, including the contributions of Giovanni Lucio and Pierre Petit, the scholars who advocated for the CT manuscript's authenticity. "Following the reappearance of the manuscript containing the Cena Trimalchionis at Trogir in Dalmatia in 1650, a full edition of all that we possess of the Satyricon today became possible, and duly appeared in 1669." [Walsh, introduction to Satyricon, Oxford, p. xxxvi] CONDITION: Acceptable, lacks Leaf II, the often excised, extra engraved title page with the pictorial design by Romeyn de Hooghe, otherwise complete. Pages: almost entirely bright and clean, some pages with light fox spots at a top edge or fore-edge, a few pages with creased tips, a few pages toward rear with light toning; substantial humidity cockling from p. 435. / Endpapers: Front Pastedown with large tear, 2 chips and seller note in pencil. / Covers: Bound in early untouched vellum with minor corner bends and soiling, short title in neat script at head of spine. / Binding: Solid and reliable, but tightened, and for many pages, book can't be laid flat. RARITY: Rare and widely sought after, a worldwide institution search finds 47 holdings, including Berkeley, Brown, Cambridge, Harvard, Oxford, Princeton and University of Texas, Austin. PROVENANCE: 1) Label of Librairie A. Durand of Paris; believed featured in his 1856 catalog.

THE SATYRICON: One of the most influential works of literature from Classical antiquity, it was ravaged by censorship and only a scattering of accepted authentic fragments from the larger lewd work have been rediscovered. The most important is the Cena Trimalchionis manuscript, a fragment variant discovered in 1423 by Poggio Bracciolini in Cologne and the first accepted as authentic manuscript to contain the principal surviving fragments of Books XIV-XVI with the Satyricon's centerpiece, Book XV, The Dinner of Trimalchio. The manuscript was 'misplaced' in Florence, before it could be published. In one of the few fortunate moments of the Satyricon's long convoluted history, it was rediscovered in the library of Nicolaus Cippicus in Trogir, Dalmatia by the scholar, Pierre Petit (aka Marino Statileo) in 1650. First issued without other fragments in 1664, the printing was carelessly executed and there are many errors in the text. For the first time, in 1669, all fragments accepted as authentic, to that time, were published in a corrected text edition and with an anthology of the most significant commentary on the work since the beginning of the Renaissance. REFERENCE: Texts and Transmission, edited by Reynolds; Reeve, Petronius, pp. 295-300. Ebert 16508, "Antonius particularly commends the edition of 1669 for its elegance and correctness."
