Title: Le Rime di Francesco Petrarca, 1901
Author: Francesco Petrarca
Publisher: G. Barbera, Firenze
Condtion: Very Good
A finely pound pocket sized edition of The Rhymes of Petrarch, being his collection of 366 poems, mostly in sonnet form. A touching example of romantic poetry.
One finely bound vellum volume in 16mo, 511 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in very good condition, with the decorated covers shining brightly despite some staining. There is minor foxing present throughout the volume around the text, but it is almost artistic in the way it has developed. The boards have warped slightly due to the environment as well. The top of the fore edge is also nicely gauffered.
