Title: Juliette et Romeo, 1892
Author: Luigi da Porto; Jacques Soldanelle
Publisher: Paris, E. Dentu Edit.
Condition: Very Good

A late 19th century edition of Luigi da Porto’s Juliette et Romeo, translated by Soldanelle. One of the early sources and inspirations for Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, it was an adaptation of Mariotto and Ganozza by Masuccio Salernitano, including such plot points such as a secret marriage, a colluding friar, the potion plot, and the crucial message that goes astray. With Salernitano’s work published in 1476, da Porto adapted the story as Giulietta e Romeo, which was published in 1524.

There are black and white illustrations throughout.

This volume has been uniquely rebound in colorful fabrics, with a texture akin to upholstery, with green against yellow.

One volume in 32mo, 109 pages

On note of condition, this volume is in very good shape, with the fabric slightly fraying at the top. There is very light foxing throughout.
