Byzantine Elements in Humanistic Script. Illustrated from the Aulus Gellius of 1445 in the Newberry Library.

Chicago: The Newberry Library, 1952. 4to, 13 pp. Stapled wrappers. Slightly age toned. (4) old vertical creases through body of text. A fairly involved study for such a brief document based on the Aulius Gellius of 1445 in the Newberry Library, which ultimately asks a pair of questions about “a member of a highly respected Milanese family who wrote, probably in Milan itself or environs, a competent Roman hand deliberately infected with Byzantine elements.” They are as follows: 1) Why he adopted this ‘Roman-Byzantine’ style; and 2) whether he was a member of a school of members employing this style.”.
