Further Details

“Illustrato con note tratte de varj dal Dott. Giulio Ferrario”. Complete in three volumes. A collection of 100 stories by various authors (Volumes 1 and 2) and Volume 3 (1810) ‘La prima e la seconda cena novelle di Antonfrancesco Grazzini detto il Lasca, alle quali si aggiunge una novella che ci resta della terza cena’. Leather binding, gilt bands and numerals to spine. All page edges protected by deckling. Engraved frontispiece to Volumes 2 and 3. Condition: Bindings of all three volumes are firm and all are internally clean and sound. The leather of all three is somewhat rubbed, and there is considerable wear, with some loss, to the spine-strip of volume 3. The spine strip of volume 1 also shows some damage, with a tendency to pull away from the front board, but this is less pronounced than in volume 3. The numbers of volumes are shown in gilt on the spine strip, but the title labels have been lost, leaving only shadows of the lettering.
