Among the printers who worked in Rome in the first age of printing, the German canon Adam Rot is not certainly among the best known and studied. In a few years of activity (in the first half of 1470s) he produced about forty editions, mostly of juridical subjects and often without typographic data. Sometimes he was also confused with Adam de Rottweil, another German printer who worked in Venice and L'Aquila. The essay, based mainly on a new examination of the editions, aims to offer a first profile of Adam Rot and of his activity in the fifteenth century Rome.
