“If I cannot move heaven, I will raise hell.”

― Virgil, The Aeneid

 

An extremely rare and important early 16th-century printing of the works of Virgil edited with additions and notes by Nicolaus Erythraeus. This 1539 Venetian edition includes each of Virgil’s major works – ‘Bucolics,’ ‘Georgics,’ and ‘Aeneid’. Nicolaus Erythraeus notes and indices were first published in this edition and was often reprinted through the start of the 17th-century. In spite of the success and popularity of Erythraeus’s Venetian ‘Virgil’, very little is known of his beyond this work.
