Show Summary Details


This chapter falls into three sections: first come documents relating to Ottaviano Petrucci's life and activity; a second section contains related documents—principally Venetians—which provide details about citizenship, and other privileges; finally comes a small group of documents listing the contents of early collections, or specifically citing Petrucci's editions. This does not include ownership marks on extant copies. The first section is not as complete as this book intended. One principal reason is that, according to Don Ceccarelli, there are no longer any documents preserved in Fossombrone pertaining to dates before 1513. Some of the Notarial documents are now in the Archivio di Stato in Pesaro: other documents for the city from before 1513 were given to the Red Cross in 1952.
