Remarks: As dated by CIBN, and Brigitte Moreau, Inventaire chronologique des éditions parisiennes du XVIe siècle d'après les manuscrits de Philippe Renouard, 4 vols (Paris, 1972-93), at I 91:2; dated ‘31 Aug. 1496' in the colophon, but, for the historical reasons set out in BMC VIII p. xxv, note 2, and from the types and state of the device, this edition must be dated to the sixteenth century; Hillard dates [c.1501] on the evidence of the different states of the errata and the explicit.
