Dialoghi Del Sig. Speron Speroni, Nobile Padovano Di Nuovo Ricorretti; A' Quali Sono Aggiunti Molti Altri Non Piu Stampati e Di Piu L'Apologia Dei Primi. Con Licentia de' Superiori & Privilegi
Venezia (Venice): Appresso Roberto Meietti, 1596. Vellum. Fine. Book. [7] + 598 pp., with several errors in pagination (including 433-454 omitted, and 563-592 repeated, in numbering). This is the work of well-known Padovan Humanist from the Renaissance. He reflects on love, women, pregnancy, family care, discord, language, rhetoric, history, fortune, Virgil, etc. Perhaps Speroni is remembered most for his championing the use of vernacular language in scholarship, and thus this important work and edition is rendered in Italian. Interior has some occasional soilage, but remarkably clean nonetheless, and binding is tight. last dedication page has small tear cutout in lower corner, not coming close to affecting text. Vellum is probably eighteenth century. It has soilage but remains quite healthy and attractive nonetheless. Spine has seven raised bands and green black label in one panel with "Speroni Dialoghi" still bright. Shelfwear is relatively light for vintage of binding. One two inch long by 1/2 inch at most area where vellum rubbed raw on back board. Was in collection of Harvard College Library. Only evidence of ex-lib is neat Harvard bookplate, two small/discreet stamps on blank back of title page (one showing 1921 date, other of deaccession, both stamps 1 inch or less in widest span) and a tiny imprint on first dedication page.
