From the collection of Hendrik D. L. Vervliet. Paris, Ruberto Stephano Regio Stampatore (Robert Estienne), 1546. First edition, first issue of Alamanni's (1495-1556) didactic poem on husbandry in the tradition of Vergil's Georgica. Alamanni, considered one of the major Italian poets, had to flee to France and became a protégé of King François I. Most of his works were written there, the "Coltivatione" being his best known and most important poem which started a revival of literature on husbandry during the Renaissance. Estienne, in this only Italian work printed by him, in fact the only work in a modern language except French, made use of his fine "grande italique" font as text type. - Ms. name "Ugolini" on title, a few spots, general very light browning, otherwise a wide-margined, well-preserved copy. - STC (French) 6; Adams A-409; Index aurel. 102.049; Mortimer (French) I, 10; Schreiber 88; Hoefer I, 495-96; Kress suppl.
