Hypnerotomachia Poliphili

By Francesco Colonna

These 8 images are of the two-volume set being sold. The first volume is the 1964 facsimile of the 1499 first edition (page numbered added) and the second volume presents scholarship and indexes. Both books are in excellent condition; the plastic DJs are brittle, the slipcase is in very good condition. There is a penciled note on the front flyleaf that this set is #223 of 1,300 printed. The books are clean and bright. Given the weight (15 pounds) and size (13.5 x 9.25 x 3.6 inches), the US buyer is asked to request expedited shipping, while an international buyer should expect to pay postage required to ship to his/her country. If you prefer another shipping choice, I am happy to accommodate you. According the the Wikipedia article, the "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (/hiːpˌnɛəroʊtəˈmɑːkiːə pəˈliːfəˌliː/; from Greek hýpnos, 'sleep', érōs, 'love', and máchē, 'fight'), called in English Poliphilo's Strife of Love in a Dream or The Dream of Poliphilus, is a romance said to be by Francesco Colonna. It is a famous example of an Incunable (a work of early printing). The work was first published in 1499 in Venice. This first edition has an elegant page layout, with refined woodcut illustrations in an Early Renaissance style."
