About This Item

Brusselle [i.e. Torino], 1847. Hard Cover. 265 pages,  Title from front wrapper, missing from this copy. Special title-page: Follie Religiose, Poema In Ottava Rima Scritto in Lingua Piemontese con note italiane dell' Autore." Other works include most of Calvo's writings: Il Diavolo in statu quo; Favole Morali. Eduardo Calvo was trained as a medical doctor. His sympathies for the French Revolution prompted these mock-heroic poems in the Piedmontese dialect which attack credulity and superstition-- for which read the Catholic Church. The republicanism of all his writings in this volume, printed in 1847, comes at a time when revolutionary, nationalistic feelings ran high in Italy; the false imprint indicates the danger of censorship faced by a printer of such seditious literature. Diz. Biog. It. 17: 36-38; Parenti, Diz. dei Luoghi di Stampa Falsi, p. 41; Contemporary ink owner name. Bound in 3/4 leather by James DiMarcantonio, Hope Bindery. stock#OB381.
