Erizzo Sebastiano. Discorso Di M. Sebastiano Erizzo, Sopra Le Medaglie Antiche, Con la Particolar Dichiaratione di Molti Riuerfi, Nuouamente Mandato in Luce. Venice: Nella Bottega Valgrifiana, 1559.

    First edition. Sixteenmo. 469 pages.

    Vellum binding. Five raised spine bands. Titles stamped in black on the spine. Boards solidly attached but both joints cracked. Soiling to boards with slightly abraded corners. Spine toned with a small area of loss not affecting titles. Contents toned, as is common with books of this period. A small water stain on the upper right corner of the text block runs throughout text, but hardly affects any text and has not cockled the paper. A sound copy of this early work on antique medals.

    Sebastian Erizzo was a Venetian writer that was instrumental in developing methods for studying ancient coins and medals. Illustrated with drawings of ancient medals with corresponding text in Italian.
