Popular edition of The Nymphs of Fiesole, edited by Francesco Sansovino (1521-1586), esteemed author, who was edited many great Italian literary works (including Cento novelle scelti de’ più nobili scittori della linga volgare) and translated ma Twelvemo. 260, [2, blank] pp. (Item ID: 11601)


Four Italian literary works, in a pocket-sized volume, testament to the rapid spread of books and learning in the first hundred or so years after Gutenberg. All of these editions are scarce.
