520 2 # $a This book was published simultaneously by B. Honorat; and some copies have a title-page carrying his imprint in place of that of Michel. Some copies, whether published by Michel or Honorat, have the words 'Raccolte', 'luoci' and 'ricorrette' in place of 'Racolte', 'luoghi' and 'corrette' in lines 8, 11-12 of the title. Cartari's Imagini was first published in 1556 in Venice; with illustrations by Zaltieri , in 1571 in Venice. The illustrated version was republished in Venice in 1580; and in 1581 appeared at Lyon this Italian edition and French and Latin translations. These Lyon publications contain eighty-eight full-page woodcut illustrations that are reduced free copies (some reversed) of the 1571 Zaltieri copperplate engravings. This popular work of iconography was reprinted and translated many times in the 16th and 17th centuries - in Italian in 1587, 1603, 1615, 1625, 1626, 1674, in French in 1610, in Latin in 1687. An English translation by Richard Linche, The fountaine of ancient fiction, appeared in 1599 (London: Adam Islip), but was unillustrated.
