About this Item

Extracted here from the first edition of Petrarch's works to be printed with Giovanni Andrea Gesualdo's commentary is Petrarch's Triomphi with the numerous comments of Gesualdo. => The Renaissance page management by which a short section of text may be printed as near-surrounded by a sea of commentary is on full show here. This offering contains the sectional title-page for I Triomphi, the dedication to Contessa di Colisano with a preface by Gesualdo, an introduction, and the poems, all neatly printed and ruled in red; the "triumphs" are love, chastity, death, fame, time, and eternity. Petrarch did not conceive of I Triomphi as a single, unified work: They do not represent a continuous writing, they differ in character one from another, and they were not assembled as a single poem until after his death. Still, once brought together the six are clearly Petrarch's greatest effort to bring the model of Dante's Comedy into his own canon. 4to (21.5 cm; 8.5"). [76] ff. Adams P-801; Fowler, M. Petrarch, Pet N 533a. 18th-century quarter vellum over marbled paper?covered boards with "Petrarca ? Trionfi" inked to spine, all edges speckled red; volume rubbed, especially at corners, boards gently bent inwards at fore-edge, light worming at spine, one small mark on front cover. Part of a larger work as mentioned above, with light pencilling on endpapers and one instance of old crayon, small signs of worming on front endpapers and most inner margins with several repaired, light waterstaining to upper inner margins and also across upper outer corners at end, a no more than ordinary degree of variable light foxing and soiling generally and a handful of leaves with uneven edges from paper manufacture. => A noble fragment, in fact very attractive and evocative.
