Boccaccio, Giovanni
[Venice: Nicolo Zopino e Vicentio compagno, 1524 An early edition of this prose narrative by Boccaccio, interspersed with poems in terza rima, after the example of Boethius and Dante's Vita Nuova. Written in 1341-2 while Boccaccio was in Florence caring for his elderly father and separated from his beloved Fiammetta in Naples, this work is about the civilizing influence of love. the pastoral framework of this piece strongly influenced subsequent Arcadian literature. (See Oxford Companion to Italian Literature). Nineteenth-century stiff vellum with gilt brown morocco spine label, marbled edges. . Small octavo. Elaborate woodcut title-page border, woodcut device on last leaf, decorative woodcut initial letters. Endpapers lightly foxed. Old ink notation on title-page, some contemporary or early ink marginalia. Short marginal cuts on leaves 71 and 72 to highlight an early ink marginal note. A very good copy overall.
