About This Item

Pisa, a Spese dell' Autore, 1854. Hard Cover. 606, [2] page; 24.5 cm. "The most prolific and most incorrigibly Romantic of the many men who wrote historical novels in the period was Francesco Domenico Guerrazzi of Leghorn" (Wilkins, p. 432). The theme of Beatrice Cenci (1577-1599), the Roman woman beheaded for plotting to kill her father, appealed to Romantic writers-- Shelley's tragedy foremost among them. This novel isn't necessarily good history-- the first objective history was by Bertolotti in 1879. This privately printed edition is very rare; the edition usually cited is that of Milan, 1872, a full generation later and after the fall of the Papal government-- the real villain of the novel. The corrupted Papacy was the target of writers about Beatrice, and the Church's censorship made its publication dangerous in 1854. Very good copy, bound in 3/4 leather with marbled-paper boards; top of spine torn. Stock#OB305.
