Filli di Sciro, favola pastorale.
Amsterdam: nella stamperia del D. Elsevier; et in Parigi si vende apresso Thomaso Jolly, 1678. 24mo (10.5 cm; 4.125"). Engr. title-page (included in pagination), 168 pp., 5 engr. plts. Sole Elzevir edition, with an added engraved title-page and five engraved plates by Sebastien Leclerc. The text is a pastoral drama, a remake of the medieval legend of Florio and Biancofiore. It was extremely popular in the 17th century because of the musicality of its language.    Provenance: Bookseller label of Leo S. Olschki. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel (“AHA”) at rear.    Searches of NUC and WorldCat find fewer than a dozen North American libraries reporting ownership.         Willems 1542. 19th-century maroon calf, plain but with raised bands beaded; rose-color endpapers. Fly-leaf with old, largely obliterated inscription; a few preliminary leaves with old faded waterstains along the outer and top margins. => An attractive copy of a nice little Elzevir.
