Hain/Cop. 13063; GW M33918; Goff P 772; BMC V, 465; BSB 569; Polain 3190; Klebs 785.2. SECOND EDITION of the works of Plato. This edition also contains the second edition of Ficino's chief philosophical work, the Platonica theologia. Ficino began work on his translation of the Platonic corpus at the request of Cosimo de' Medici in 1463. He completed it in 1468, and it circulated in manuscript until it was printed, along with Ficino's commentary on the text, in 1484. Two years earlier, in 1482, Ficino had published the Platonica theologia, in which he set out to prove the harmony between Christian theology and Platonism. This edition thus brings together the most important Renaissance interpretation of Platonism with the fundamental texts. The importance Ficino attached to the Platonic works even extended to the printing process, and Ficino was pleased with the typographical correctness of the present edition. In contrast, the 1482 edition of his Platonic Theology contained 7 pages of corrigenda.
