Venice: 1547. Quarto in marbled boards, vellum spine with title added in black ink and presumed collection number 205 at the tail of spine. Text block is mostly clean with 16th cent. annotations and some water staining to the final page and colophon. All in all an attractive early printing of an important work Roman philosopher Boethius (ca. 480-524) wrote his most famous work, THE CONSOLATION OF PHILOSOPHY, while in prison in Pavia for conspiring against Theodoric, Emperor of Rome, who had named Boethius consul (510) and head of government and court services (520). In 524 he was executed without trial. Boethius's translations of and commentaries on Aristotle included in the present text are credited with re-introducing the philosopher to scholars in the 16th century eager to read writings from the Greek golden age. A millennium later with the advent of printing, early versions such as this presented Aristotle to a wider Renaissance audience and helped to establish the present cannon of classical texts.
