La Divina Commedia ... manoscritta da Boccaccio.

by Dante Alighieri; Aloisio Fantoni (ed.)

Condition: Fine/The text of this edition is based on the Florentine manuscript (Vaticano 3199) that (tradition holds) is in Boccaccio's hand


Roveta: negli Occhi Santi di Bice, 1820-23. Fine/The text of this edition is based on the Florentine manuscript (Vaticano 3199) that (tradition holds) is in Boccaccio's handwriting, with notes and comments by Petrarch, who once owned it. Aloisio Fantoni copied it out by hand and prepared the text from his own faithful transcription. Handsomely printed in the Alpine village of Roveta (near Bergamo) in Bodoni-style types, few copies were produced, and they are prized.. 3 volumes; comprising xxxii, 617 pages (including engraved frontispiece portrait of Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio), and engraved facsimile of a passage from the manuscript, and 2 leaves errata. Publisher's "elephant" vignette on title page. Pages untrimmed and unopened. In original gray printed publishers wraps. Wraps a bit stained, especially on spines, with some fraying along the joint of volume 1. Light scattered foxing. Lovely, unsophisticated copy! References: Mambelli 126; Gamba 404; Fiske 16;
