About this Item

Famous as he is for his sonnets and influence on the development of the Italian language, to understand best why Petrarch (1304?74) is often labelled the father of Renaissance humanism, one must read and know his correspondence, his epistolarum. In this edition they are, as stated on the title-page, "Opus non paucis mendis repurgatum & multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C. quae ut ? caeteris dignosci possint ex Epistola ad lectorem praefixa intelligetur." The reference to "multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C." refers to the 65 letters found in the library of Johannes Chalasius, of N?mes, and => published here for the first time. The volume is in roman type and has the Crispinus printer's device on the title-page, woodcut initials, and headpieces. This is one of several issues of an edition differing only in the imprint and in slight variations of paging. 8vo (16.8 cm; 6.625"). [16] ff., 96, 93?396, 381?683 (i.e., 703), [1 (blank)] p.
