The copy of Valla's ‘Aesop' in the British Library begins with Poggio's Facetiae, in an edition printed in Paris ‘sub signo follis viridis'. It appears in BMC with ‘Poggius Florentinus' as the main heading; the ISTC also records it under that heading. The Bodleian's volume contains Poggio, but this is the edition from Louvain, by Johannes de Westfalia. IGI 65 refers only to Valla and Petrarch.

Wanting Poggio Bracciolini, Facetiae.

SHELFMARK: Douce 104(3).
