Istruzioni per l’uso e dichiarazioni di metodo nei volgarizzamenti aristotelici del Rinascimento (I)



This article analyzes the rhetorical structure of the title pages of vernacular Aristotelian texts produced and published in Italy during the sixteenth century. The essay is the first part of a larger study focused on para­textual elements such as frontispieces and dedicatory epistles, which often contained specific instructions regarding the proper use of these books, as well as statements about the methods employed by the authors in their treatment of the philosophical material.
