Italian City and regional statutes 1473-1600, in the British Library
Dennis E. Rhodes
WITH the purchase in September 1974 of the printed statutes of Bologna, a book which was completed shortly after 28 February 1475, the British Library increases its holdings ot the products of the first press in Bologna, that of Baldassare Azzoguidi, from fourteen to fifteen out of a total of perhaps thirty editions known to have been issued by this printer. It is the first time that a copy of this important book has entered a British collection, although it is by no means one of the rarest of early Italian incunabula, six copies being recorded in Italy (two of these in Bologna itself) and four in the United States.
