- The 2 volume work ‘Vitae illustrium virorum sive parallelae’, printed in 1478 in Venice by Nicolaus Jenson, is the Fagel Collection’s oldest book. This Latin translation of Plutarch’s Parallel Lives (or Lives of the Noble Greeks and Romans) is illuminated by the miniaturist known as the Master of the London Pliny, and includes translations by some of the leading Italian intellectuals of this period. It was decorated for a Venetian merchant family, the Agostini.
