November 4, 2021 After Hours with Aldus Manutius: A Conversation with G. Scott Clemons & Jason W. Dean - Online

In the last decade of the 15th century, a middle-aged private tutor named Aldus Manutius made the stunning decision to leave the comfortable employ of a noble family and enter the cutthroat world of printing. The implications of that career change reverberate to this day throughout the worlds of textual criticism, book design, typography, book production, copyright law, collecting, and classical philology. Whether by accident or design, Aldus’s career change put him in the right place at the right time to apply the relatively new technology of printing with movable type to the difficult task of printing Greek, catalyzing the re-entry of ancient science to western Europe. As a result, virtually the entire surviving Greek canon found its way into print for the first time, and therefore into posterity. Join collector and scholar G. Scott Clemons and the Library’s Vice President for Special Collections Jason W. Dean as they explore the enduring legacy of the Aldine Press, exemplified by materials held by the Library.
