Illustrated edition of Petrarch's Rime and Trionfi, with => seven gorgeous in-text woodcuts, one of Petrarch and Laura, six others depicting personifications of the various subjects of the Trionfi riding into battle. The commentary is that of Italian scholar Pietro Bembo (1470?1547), who has added a brief description of Petrarch's life and the origins of Laura. Luca Antonio Ridolfi's Tavola di Tutte le Rime de i Sonetti e Canzoni del Petrarca, an index listing the poet's various rhyme schemes and where to find them, follows Petrarch's text with a separate title-page and pagination ? an extraordinary production and project. Fowler notes this is a reissue of Bevilacqua's 1562 edition, which is a reprint of Rouill?'s 1558 edition; the illustrations first appeared in L. Avanzo's 1557 edition. Bevilacqua's device is present on both main works' title-pages and after the colophon. 12mo (14.7 cm; 5.75"). 490, [2], 259, [3] pp.; illus. Graesse, V, 228; Fowler, M. Petrarch, p. 107, Pet N 564a. Vellum over boards, green morocco spine label with elegant gilt lettering and rolls; very slight loss of vellum at top and bottom of hinges, light inking on top and bottom edge, light pencilling on endpapers. Old private, monogram rubber-stamp on title-page; light age-toning with varying levels of generally quite unobtrusive waterstaining, often marginal only; a handful of short tears or ink dottings, and a few leaves trimmed unevenly or with bent corners. => In fact a lovely little book.
