Dante con l'espositione di Christoforo Landino, et di Alessandro Vellutello, sopra la sua Comedia dell'Inferno, del Purgatorio, & del Paradiso. Con tavole, argomenti, & allegorie, & riformato, riveduto, & ridotto alla sua vera lettura, per Francesco Sansovino fiorentino.
- In Venetia, appresso Giovambattista, MarchiĆ² Sessa, & fratelli, 1564, in-folio, XIXth century quarter leather binding (with some losses along the hinge of the first board), leaves [22], 340. This is a largely incomplete copy: it lacks the following leaves: *1 (title page), *8, **1, **6, +3, +8, CC2, VV5, VV6, VV7, VV8 and the six finale gatherings (XX, YY, ZZ, AAA, BBB, CCC: each of them was made by 8 leaves). The Z1 leaf is bound in a wrong position. Two leaves are affected by foxing. Few leaves show some restorations on the outer margin. A very important edition called "del nasone" ("of the big nose") for the portrait of Dante on the title page (this copy lacks it). Patrizia Costabile in "Pagine di Dante. Le edizioni della Divina Commedia dal torchio al computer. Catalogo a cura di R. Rusconi" Electa Editori, 1990: "Curata da Francesco Sansovino, intreccia il commento quattrocentesco del Landino con quello del Vellutello, apparso la prima volta nel 1544. Dedicata al papa Pio IV, riproduce sostanzialmente il testo della aldina del 1502, non avvedendosi il Sansovino che esso non sempre corrispondeva la commento". The nice woodcuts are the same we can find in the venetian Marcolini's edition of 1544. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
