Condition Report

Second edition of this great complete specimen. In the first two volumes, poems inspired by food, banquets, parties, hunting and games, while the third volume contains the Tabaccheide, a piece devoted to tobacco only, "the poet's drug." Girolamo Baruffaldi 1675 - 1755, was a priest, a poet and a literate, also known for conceiving false philological and localistic. He cultivated archeology, history and poetry. He also wrote Rime's choices of Ferrari poets, with a large number of false attributions of Ferrari poetry texts, which subsequently deceived Foscolo and Carducci, and Leopardi in particular who inserted into poetic Crestomanzia two sonons fired by Baruffaldi such as Brunelleschi and Leonello d 'Este. It is considered one of the most genial forgers in the field of ancient literature.
