DINUS MUGELLANUS

De reg [ulis] ju [laughs]. Lyon, Nicolas Petit, 1540.
142 ff. and 22 ff.n.ch.: brown basane, gilded animal motifs stenciled on the covers, spine decorated, red title coin, red edges (18th century binding).
Rare gothic edition, not listed by Baudrier, of the corpus of laws by Dino de Mugello.
A learned Tuscan jurisconsult, he professed law in Pistoia, Bologna and Rome in the second half of the 13th century. Published by Celse-Hugues Descousu, it contains the comments of the jurist Nicolas Bohier.
Printed in Gothic characters with 42 lines per page, from the presses of Etienne Roussin and his brother-in-law Jean Ausoult, who worked in association between 1539 and 1548 approximately. On the back of the last page, an attractive typographic mark by Nicolas Petit.
Very curious binding decorated on the plates with stencilled gilded animal motifs.
Two birds, a peacock doing the wheel, a deer and an animal, perhaps a scorpion, can be seen. These motifs seem to have been struck with wooden dies used in the manufacture of Augsburg papers.
Moulding throughout the volume.
