Giunti Press

   Italian printing and publishing firm, founded at Venice in 1489 by Lucantonio Giunti (1457-1538), but brought to prominence by his business partner and brother Filippo (1456-1517), who transferred his shop to Florence in 1497. Lucantonio had published liturgical and medical books, but Filippo produced mainly humanistic works and editions of Greek and Latin classics, as well as Italian vernacular authors. His most notable classical publication was the first Greek edition of Plutarch's Lives (1517). His branch of the family continued in business until the early 17th century. In addition, his descendants founded presses in Spain and France. The original Venetian branch continued as a separate firm until the middle of the 17th centry, carrying on its original tradition of publishing liturgical, medical, and other professional books.
