Del Primo (-sesto) libro de le Lettere di M. Pietro Aretino

By Aretino Pietro

Paris: Matreo il Maestro, 1609. Later Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Very Good Condition. 3 volumes in contemporary limp vellum, remains of ties, some discoloration to vellum, occasional creasing to a few early leaves, end papers rumpled and a little torn, the third book is lacking the final two pages of the table (ends at M), generally fine otherwise. 6 books bound in 3. [6], 283; [10], 325; [8], 362; [8], 296; [8], 338, [6]; [8], 301 leaves. One of the most singular figures in the Renaissance, Aretino was a poet, playwright, schemer, satirist, and pornographer who made a career out of infiltrating the highest levels of society and then alternately satirizing them in his writings, or blackmailing them. For a time his patron was Cardinal Giulio de' Medici, and he mocked Popes and would be popes, but in time he settled in Venice - the Anti-Rome. Ariosto called him "the scourge of Princes". He is remembered most for his satires and his letters which detail conversations with both the great names of the day as well as regular folk, both women and men. His ability to manipulate the reader of his letters - which were carefully chosen and probably always meant for publication - by constructing a compelling narrative with himself as central protagonist - changed epistolary collections forever.

Pancharis [bound with] Imitations du Latin de Jean Bonnefons Avec Autres Gayetez Amoureuses de L'Invention de L'Autheur

By Bonnefons, Jean; Durant, Gilles

Lutetiae (Paris): Abelis L'Angelier, 1587. First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Very Good Condition. Later but likely 17th century half vellum over paste paper boards, some soiling and wear. Slight age toning, Durant penned to the second title, otherwise clean internally. 68, (2), blank; 148, (3), blank. Register of Erotic Books (the 1878 edition and the 1722 English translation). When Bonnefons' Pancharis appeared it was hailed as the finest verse since Catullus (whose Baccia it is modeled on) - it was so popular that the imitations in French by Durant followed so quickly (and without noting the author) that it was long thought to be authored by Bonnefons as well. Very rare, just 6 copies in OCLC and 1 at auction over the last 30+ years. Both works with the privilege leaf and errata at the end. Size: duodecimo (12mo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Poetry; Erotica. Inventory No: 044735.
