About this Item

In-16°, pp. (4), 161, (4), brossura editoriale ripiegata color crema con illustrazione a colori al piatto. 16 illustrazioni a carattere erotico f.t. di Brunelleschi e 23 vignette in b.n. n.t. Fregi in b.n. n.t. Perfetto stato. Edizione di 3000 esemplari numerati (n° 1064), impressa su carta delle Papeteries de Condat. Capolavoro narrativo di Voltaire, il libro è una satira dell'ottimismo smodato, della credenza nell'armonia prestabilita e nel razionalismo ad oltranza personificati in Pangloss (scoperta allusione a Leibniz) e nel suo migliore dei mondi possibili. Pubblicato nel 1759 e destinato a immensa fortuna, resta ancora oggi la scrittura volterriana più universalmente letta e forse la sua più feconda anche sul piano delle influenze culturali ed artistiche (in musica ha ispirato nel '900 il Candide di Bernstein).

Store Description

Galleria Gilibert antiquarian bookshop was opened in 1992 by the late Alfredo Gilibert, great bibliophile and collector throughout his life of all forms of art on paper. His son Massimo now owns and runs the bookshop and continues the family tradition of locating and providing books and prints to collectors around the world. Galleria Gilibert has been a member of L.I.L.A. since 1997. The bookshop occupies two floors in the magnificent gallery Galleria Subalpina in the heart of Turin, between two of the city's most important squares: Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto. It is very close to the Biblioteca Reale, the famous Egyptian museum, and the Galleria Sabauda. We also participate in a number of book fairs each year, most notably those in Milan, Turin, and Paris.
