About this Item

Handsome little edition of these classic Franciscan writings. Oddly, while the New Catholic Encyclopedia of 1967 rather sternly decries the Fioretti as overly legendary and romantic, the Catholic Encyclopedia of 1913 praises the work as a beautiful expression of medieval religious life, saying ?Nowhere can there be found a more childlike faith, a livelier sense of the supernatural, or a simpler literalness in the following Christ than in the pages of the Fioretti.? The text of the present edition follows that adopted by Antonio Cesari, the ?standard? Italian version. Searches of WorldCat and the NUC suggest that two U.S. libraries report ownership, but there is really => only one and it is now at Georgetown. Binding: Contemporary cream speckled paper over boards in imitation of vellum, covers bordered in gilt single and red double fillets; red leather title label to spine divided into compartments by gilt-stamping in broad bands, with a gilt device in each compartment. Ornate gilt inner dentelles, and stiff marbled endpapers typical of the era. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Sm 8vo (14.8 cm; 5.75"). 330 pp. Bound as above, front cover very slightly sprung; corners bumped with some accompanying discoloration, not severe. Two front fly-leaves with pencilled notes, some faint spots of foxing. => Overall a clean, lovely little book; quite pleasing. Bookseller Inventory # 36682
