Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with a discussion on Girolamo Avanzi and the "Aldina". The main source of the origin and history of Editio Aldina of Seneca tragedies is the letter of Girolamo Avanzi from Verona, who worked around 1493 as a professor of philosophy in Padua. The "Ascensiana Aldina" contains no accompanying commentary. The chapter discusses the sources and foundations of Aldina. This is followed by a textual criticism of Avanzi between collation and conjecture. Although the issue of Avanzi appeared three years after the "Ascensiana" (1514), some of Badius' conjectures were already known. Five years after the "Aldina" appeared in Venice in Bernardino de Viani de Lexona, Avanzi was worried about another edition of Seneca tragedies. "Aldina" was provided with two comments by Bernardino Marmita and Daniele Caetani and contains the same dedication letter to Latino Giovenale.
