About this Item

Folio. Three parts in one. 8, xxvii; 14, xliii; 11, xxxiii pp., + (35)ff. Contains thirty-five stipple-engraved plates, all but one in sepia, showing frescoes by the famed Renaissance painter Correggio at the Monastero de San Paolo in Parma. The engravings were done by Francesco Rosaspina after the Portuguese artist Francisco Vieira. Text printed in three parts: Italian (by De Rossi), French (by De Lama), and Spanish (by Baroni and Arteaga). Dedicated to the recently married Louis of Bourbon-Parma and the Infanta Maria Luisa of Spain. Although the Duke of Parma first approved the project in 1790, the artists were not allowed into the Camera di San Paolo until 1795. They spent one full day in the room recording the frescoes. The drawings were to have been sent to Rome for engraving by Raffaello Sanzio Morghen. Much to the dissatisfaction of Bodoni's patron, Morghen could not take on the project. Bodoni instead selected his friend Francesco Rosaspina, who had been one of the artists allowed into the Camera in 1795. Despite the disparaging comments of his patron, Bodoni's choice was a wise one- the finished result is beautiful. In an early twentieth-century binding of half red morocco and marbled boards. Gilt lettering and ornamentation to the spine, which is in six compartments. Marbled endpapers. Bottom two inches of upper hinge starting, some rubbing and bumping to corners, light interior foxing, else a fine copy of an elegant Bodoni work, printed for Regal Palazzo. T.e.g. This volume is from the collection of Robert Hoe and bears his booklabel to the inside front cover, as well as that of his son. One of Bodoni's most sophisticated and exceptional works. (Brooks 774; Lester, pp. 133-134). Bookseller Inventory # 21733
