About This Item

Italia, 1841. Reprint. Three quarter leather. Very good +. A very good plus copy of Porta's (1775-1821) poetry in the Milanese, with an appendix of poetry by Steppani. Brown and yellow marbled boards over 3/4 tan leather. All edges painted blue speckled. Cream endpapers showing offset. Foxing to pages. Binding is sturdy and square. 202 pp. plus an appendix of 14 pp. of poetry by Pietro Steppani in script from 1815. Followed by 30 blank pages, as if inviting notes or the reader's own compositions. 18mo, 4 1/4 x 6 inches tall. Carlo Porta (June 15, 1775 – January 5, 1821) was an Italian poet, the most famous writer in Milanese (the central dialect of the Western Lombard language). ... Porta began to write poems in 1790, although few of them were published before 1810. In 1804-1805 he worked at a Milanese translation of the Divine Comedy, which he, however, left unfinished. In these years the progressive group that formed round him and called themselves the "Cameretta Portiana" included Giuseppe Bossi, who painted a group portrait of four Amici della Cameretta Portiana".--- wikipedia
