Il Petrarca con dichiarationi non piv stampate - Petrarca, Francesco, & Pietro B - 1470. [1200667]
Illustrated edition of Petrarch's Rime and Trionfi, with => seven gorgeous in-text woodcuts, one of Petrarch and Laura, six others depicting personifications of the various subjects of the Trionfi riding into battle.The commentary is that of Italian scholar Pietro Bembo (1470-1547), who has added a brief description of Petrarch's life and the origins of Laura. Luca Antonio Ridolfi's Tavola di Tutte le Rime de i Sonetti e Canzoni del Petrarca, an index listing the poet's various rhyme schemes and where to find them, follows Petrarch's text with a separate title-page and pagination -- an extraordinary production and project. Fowler notes this is a reissue of Bevilacqua's 1562 edition, which is a reprint of Rouillé's 1558 edition; the illustrations first appeared in L. Avanzo's 1557 edition. Bevilacqua's device is present on both main works' title-pages and after the colophon.
