About this Item

Book. [7] + 598 pp., with several errors in pagination (including 433-454 omitted, and 563-592 repeated, in numbering). This is the work of well-known Padovan Humanist from the Renaissance. He reflects on love, women, pregnancy, family care, discord, language, rhetoric, history, fortune, Virgil, etc. Perhaps Speroni is remembered most for his championing the use of vernacular language in scholarship, and thus this important work and edition is rendered in Italian. Interior has some occasional soilage, but remarkably clean nonetheless, and binding is tight. last dedication page has small tear cutout in lower corner, not coming close to affecting text. Vellum is probably eighteenth century. It has soilage but remains quite healthy and attractive nonetheless. Spine has seven raised bands and green black label in one panel with "Speroni Dialoghi" still bright. Shelfwear is relatively light for vintage of binding. One two inch long by 1/2 inch at most area where vellum rubbed raw on back board. Was in collection of Harvard College Library. Only evidence of ex-lib is neat Harvard bookplate, two small/discreet stamps on blank back of title page (one showing 1921 date, other of deaccession, both stamps 1 inch or less in widest span) and a tiny imprint on first dedication page.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
