About This Item

Roveta: negli Occhi Santi di Bice, 1820-23. Fine/The text of this edition is based on the Florentine manuscript (Vaticano 3199) that (tradition holds) is in Boccaccio's handwriting, with notes and comments by Petrarch, who once owned it. Aloisio Fantoni copied it out by hand and prepared the text from his own faithful transcription. Handsomely printed in the Alpine village of Roveta (near Bergamo) in Bodoni-style types, few copies were produced, and they are prized.. 3 volumes; comprising xxxii, 617 pages (including engraved frontispiece portrait of Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio), and engraved facsimile of a passage from the manuscript, and 2 leaves errata. Publisher's "elephant" vignette on title page. Pages untrimmed and unopened. In original gray printed publishers wraps. Wraps a bit stained, especially on spines, with some fraying along the joint of volume 1. Light scattered foxing. Lovely, unsophisticated copy! References: Mambelli 126; Gamba 404; Fiske 16;

About Rodger Friedman Rare Book Studio

Rodger Friedman Rare Book Studio owes its name and its inspiration to the traditional Italian studio bibliografico. These small antiquarian bookshops, typically run by individuals who combine deep scholarship with a love of the printed object, remind us that underlying the words "study" and "studio" is the Latin term for zeal and devotion, studium. Since 1993, my goal has been to match discerning collectors with extraordinary books and manuscripts.
