Large octavo, hardcover, parchment paper boards. 90 pages, printed letterpress on Italian Manunzia paper.

The facsimiles were printed offset in five colors by The Meriden Gravure Company. Covers very slightly bowed. No slip case. A very fine copy.Nearly mint. "The stories translated in this small volume have been chosen from an early fifteenth century manuscript of 'Le Fatiche d'Ercole,' a fanciful account of the Labors of Hercules by Pietro Andrea di Bassi. The work was composed before 1435 at the request of Niccolo III d'Este, Marquis of Ferrara, perhaps in celebration of the birth of Ercole d'Este in 1431. The handsomely illuminated manuscript, obtained from the collection of an Austrian nobleman in 1954, belongs to the Philip Hofer Collection at the Houghton Library of Harvard University." (from the Translator's Preface). Bookseller Inventory # 1069
