Condition Report

Very rare first edition. The work, printed on the indication of the Trissino family, is a fierce attack against Traiano Boccalini: at the same time it is a praise of Giovanni Giorgio Trissino to report in the end the epitaph at Sant'Agata in Rome. There are two white pages where readers are invited to write 'Epitaphia varia' to be placed on the tomb of Boccalini.
