certain edition of Greek and Latin classics, bold typeface

After the Venetian printer-publisher Aldus Manutius (Velletri 1449 – Venice 1515).

Manutius was famous for his editions of the Greek and Latin classics, called 'aldines'. He also improved the existing Latin, Greek and Hebrew letters. The best aldins, a total of more than 900 large volumes, were published between 1494 and 1530.

Manutius' son and grandson continued the work of their father and grandfather until 1597.
