Attributed to Padua by GW. BMC attributes to an unidentified printer in Venice named the Printer of Cicero, ‘De Officiis’ (H 5268 *) in Goff and IGI, and the Printer of Columella in CIBN. CIBN dates “not after 1482” of an invoice on a copy referenced by BMC.
CIBN suggests that this edition was the model for the Venice edition of 16 September 1482
