ILLUSTRATED ITALIAN TRANSLATION in the version of Battista Alessandro Jaconello for the first part of Plutrach's Lives, and of Giulio Bordone for the second part. It is a reprint of the 1529 Bindoni edition, which in turn was first published by Zoppino in 1525.
This version was first published by Tramezzino in 1543 and reprinted in 1548. The selections from Plutarch's Moralia were translated by Antonio Massa and Giovanni Tarcagnota. These older translations were superseded by those of Lodovico Domenichi in 1555 (Vite) and 1560 (Opuscoli) (cf. V. Costa, Sulle prime traduzioni italiane a stampa delle opera di Plutarco, secc. XV-XVI, in: “Volgarizzare e tradurre dal¬l'Uma¬ne¬si¬mo all'Età contemporanea. Atti della Giornata di Studi, 7 dicembre 2011, Università di Roma ‘Sapien¬za' ”, M. Accame, ed., Roma, 2013, pp. 87-88).
