In 1995 the Friends of the Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University published In aedibus Aldi: the legacy of Aldus Manutius and his press. This catalog accompanied an exhibition in the Harold B. Lee Library from March to August, 1995, of a selection of the library's Aldine holdings, celebrating the quincentenary of the founding of the Aldine Press.
This is a digital version of the exhibition, with text excerpted from the catalog. The exhibition was divided into six sections, outlined in the Preface. Each book in this digital exhibition is illustrated with a picture of the binding followed by a picture of the title page, where present, and in some cases a selection of other pages. Dimensions are those of the text pages, height followed by width.
The copyright of the catalog and exhibition is held by the Friends of the Harold B. Lee Library.
