Sabbioneta Print

Star of David print logo On the first page of Maimonides' book, "moreh nevuchim" (guide to the perplexed) in Sabbioneta print from 1553 there's a Star of David in the leaves of the tree in the bottom center. The printer, Tobias ben Eliezer Foa, used it as a personal printers' signature on a few of his Hebrew books.
