Condition Report

Elegant and accurate edition edited by Dominic in the translation of Virgilio's works preceded by a life written by the Porcacchi. Among translators, Bernardino Daniello, Ippolito de 'Medici, Alessandro Piccolomi, Giuseppe Betussi. Compared to other translations made by various authors, this is deserving of preference, Gamba writes in his series, n. 1740, and since richer than each other and elegantly imprinted, it is primarily considered in the bibliographies.
