Biblica Latina printed in Venice in 1519 by Lucantonio Giunta reprinted from an earlier 1511 edition. Lucantonio Giunta was one of the major figures in a distinguished family of Florentine publishers, printers and booksellers. He was born in Florence in 1457 and was a bookseller there until he moved to Venice in 1477, where he continued his trade until 1489 when he established his own press. Active in Venice between 1489 and 1538, he and his heirs distinguished themselves particularly for their large number of liturgical books, missals and breviaries, many with beautiful illustrations, as well as illustrated books in the vernacular for the mass market. (Adams B995; Essling 145; Sander 1002). TITLE PAGE The verso thirty-six lines of black and red Gothic text in two columns with music consisting of a four line stave in red with black notes. This printer’s mark is one of the many variations that Lucantonio Giunta included in the colophons of the books he published. It is comprised primarily of an ornamental heraldic lily, specifically referred to as the “Florentine lily.” This symbol served to represent both Giunta himself and his entire family. On either side of the lily are the initials L.A., suggesting the printer’s first name, Luca Antonio. There is also a woodcut of The Evangelist St Mark with his symbol, the lion.
