Description:A printer's details on an Italian Shakespeare sourcebook.

The 'colophon', or printer’s note was often placed on the final page of a book on its completion. This, at the end of Hecatommithi, part 1, shows that this part of the work was actually finished in 1579, printed by the heirs of Francesco Rampezatto, although the title page has the date 1580, with the printers named as the Zopini brothers, who had completed the book.

Full title: Giambattista Geraldi Cinthio, (1504-1573) Hecatommithi, ouer cento novelle di M. Giovan-batttista Giraldi Cinthio [in two parts]. In Venetia, appresso Fabio & Agostin Zopini, 1580. [Colophon to part 1 1579].
