About this Item

This is a collection of stories by Boccaccio. Written in the late 15th century, the overall story is that 10 young Florentines move to the countryside to avoid the Plague and await the decline of medieval Christian civilization. To pass the time, they each agree to tell one story each day for ten days with a different theme for each day. The stories they tell are grouped by the day. The stories vary widely, but often poke fun at the Catholic Church. Included are illustrations, an appendix, a general index, and an index of names. This copy is clean and solid. It is TWO VOLUMES IN ONE and covers all ten days. Bookseller Inventory # 007275
