Condition Report

Rare first edition of this work, of which there are two distinct prints that are different for the presence of the dedication to Mr. Gieronimo Pina gentleman of Cataro. Some examples therefore have 3 dedication leaves between the preliminary and the explicit reference to the titlepage, others dont have the dedication and the titlepage. Our specimen is complete with this dedication. Unusual original edition of this work by Zuccolo, a Fainean political writer. "Ouvrage fort rare, important pour l'histoire des moeurs. A la fin de la table se trouvent six lignes en vers slaves". See Choix de Olschki, II. 
 
First edition. Description of the reasons for the number of Italian verse:"E' dettato con vivacità e leggiadria, e da essere ben accolto da ogni professore di belle lettere".
