About this Item

Maroon leather, a.e.g., library sticker on spine; oblong 12mo (270x165mm); approx. pp. 200, a variety of papers, nearly full of verses in manuscript (by diverse hands) and beautifully accomplished original artwork in ink, wash, gouache, and/or watercolor. Leather scuffed, and torn on upper board; a few leaves loose. A beautiful example, with hundreds of verses in Italian (most of them uncredited) all in ink by many hands -- some signed, some with locations (Milano, Caserta, Bologna, S. Andrea, Lodi, et al), many dated. Penmanship is legible, even lovely, throughout, and the quality and variety of the artwork is remarkable. Includes silhouettes, scenes, landscapes (mostly Italy, but including the Middle East), floral motifs (some with a Japanese influence), animals, costume, and much more. Should be seen.
