Manutius, Aldus (1449-1515)

One of the most prominent letterpress printers of the Italian Renaissance. In 1493, Manutius founded a print shop in Venice and subsequently published a series of compact and inexpensive but nevertheless highly scientific works from classical Greek, Latin and Italian authors. Around 1,000 copies of these “Aldines,” as they were known, were produced.
