About this Item

Rare and important edition, and only the fourth printing of Dante’s ‘Convivio’. This edition used by academics and especially by Salvini With a beautifully engraved titlepage featuring an illustrated and regal border depicting nymphs and animals amidst climbing vines, initial 7-line capital letter handsomely engraved, colophon leaf engraved. Small octavo, in an antique binding of soft vellum, probably of the 19th century, the spine with gilt decorations all over and the title and author printed in gilt. [xvi], 112 leaves A clean, fresh and well preserved copy of this scarce work, very little spotting, crisp and unpressed and unwashed. RARE AND IMPORTANT EDITION. All 16th century editions of the work are extremely elusive. Dante’s CONVIVIO, or Banquet, is an unfinished philosophical work by the great Italian poet. It was planned as a series of 14 treatises, each in the form of a prose commentary on one of Dante’s own CANZONI. The four completed treatises, written between 1304 and 1308, draw on numerous philosophical sources but most heavily on Aristotle. It is the first work of Dante to explore certain doctrines and meditations, politics and the political society and moral man. Bookseller Inventory # 20542
