Libri di diritto civile e canonico nella biblioteca della famiglia Meli a Cremona (1479)
| AEVUM - 2011 - 3
Members of the Meli family, a prominent one in the 15th century Cremona,
were jurisconsults, notaries and students in artes. Giovanni Meli, iuris utriusque doctor,
made his will in 1479, bequeathing his library to his nephew Giovanni Francesco. An inventory
of the books (38 or 39 volumes) is included in the will: these are texts of Roman
law and canon law with standard commentaries, a few are described as ‘printed’. The book
description gives incipit, explicit and estimated value, ranging from 1 1/2 to 35 gold florins.
