Brief Lives: Biographies from Early Modernity

Eustachio Celebrino

Rosa Salzberg pieces together Eustachio Celebrino's life from his own (not necessarily trustworthy) admissions, and from the numerous works he published in the early decades of the sixteenth century. A prolific hack writer (poligrafo) and a maker of woodcuts for printed books, Celebrino typifies the adaptability, versatility and mobility of many of those who became involved in the Italian publishing industry in the first century after its initiation in the 1460s.
