Atti della Solenne Coronazione fatta in Campidoglio della Insigne Poetessa D.na Maria Maddalena Morelli Fernandez pistojese tra gli Arcadi Corilla Olimpica
(Parma: Stamperia Reale, 1779). Octavo. xii, 296pp. First edition. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of the poetess crowned with a laurel wreath, eleven beautifully-engraved vignettes and twelve culs-de-lamp.This elegantly-printed volume was published in commemoration of the coronation of poet Maria Maddalena Morelli Fernandez with laurels on the Capitol in Rome in 1778, after enduring a three-day test of her poetic skill. She was crowned in the same ceremony that had honored Petrarch and the improvisatore Perfetti before her. Fernandez was widely renowned for her skill at poetic improvisation, and was named a member of the prestigious literary Academy of Arcadia in Rome. Upon joining the Academy, she adopted the name Corilla Olimpica. The text describes the events and includes a collection of sonnets, odes, and other poetic verses in tribute to "Corilla." Bound in stiff wrappers covered with blue, pink, and yellow marbled paper, with the title inscribed in ink on the spine. Covers show some wear to extremities, some loss to head and tail of spine, else fine.
