Note
  • This is either the second or third edition of Aeschylus: the editio princeps was published in Venice at the Aldine Press in 1518, and no precedence can be established between Turnèbe's Paris edition and Robortello's Venice edition of the same year (see Gruys, pages 32-33). In the Turnèbe edition Agamemnon and Choephori are conflated, following the editio princeps. This was corrected in the Robortello edition (see Brill's new Pauly dictionary of Greek and Latin authors and texts, 2009, page 16)
  • "Bios Aischylou tou poiētou," preliminary pages 6-7
  • Signatures: a4 A-N8 O4
  • Errors in pagination: 23 as 32; 34-35 as 33-34; 38-39 as 37-38; 130-131 as 126-127; 134-135 as 130-131; 138-139 as 134-135; 143-144 as 138-139. Text and register continuous
  • Probably printed by Guillaume Morel (see Gruys, page 32)
  • Adams identifies two issues of this edition: one in which leaves A3 and A4 are signed, the other in which they are not signed
  • Woodcuts: Turnèbe's device on title page, featuring a serpent coiled around an upright lance, entwined with olive branches; motto below in Greek, "Basilei t' agathō kraterō t'aichmetē" ("For the good King, a mighty warrior"); Greek foliated head-pieces; large Greek foliated initials
  • Printed in Greek types, with wide margins, probably to accomodate the reader's annotations of the Greek texts
