About this Item

Minor edge and corner wear, lightly scuffed and scratched, corners are gently bumped and rubbed, lightly shelf worn, front hinge is cracked, pages are toning, overall a very clean used copy! Decorative light blue cloth with gilt ornament on the front cover and gilt lettering and illustration on the spine. Deckle page edges. Extremely scarce! Gilt upper outer page edges. 483 very clean unmarked and uncreased historical pages nicely enhanced by black and white illustrations! Six genealogical tables including 3 fold-outs in the back of the text. Wonderfully well-preserved! Very very rare and hard-to-find! "It is surely unnecessary to make any apology for this second edition of the Memoirs of the Dukes of Urbino. Notwithstanding all that has been done in the last fifty years by historians on the one hand, and by imaginative writers on the other, with the object of elucidating the history of that part of Central Italy which lies within the ancient confines of Umbria, or of the appreciating the humanism of that Court which was once a pattern for the world, this book of James Dennistoun's remains the standard authority to which every writer within or without Italy must go in dealing in any way with these subjects." ---- from the Introduction. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 031751
