Hardcover. 118,  pages; Contemporary cream colored boards, two small labels with collection numbers on spine and front cover -- (the faint spine label matches the number on the booklabel of Leo S. Olschki [ Ex libris Leonis S. Olschki bibliopolae Veneti Established heading] -- longtime booksellers in Florence, etc. Two small inscriptions dated 1843 on the enpapers. A well preserved uncut copy, impressed as an octavo with generous margins, possibly on large paper -- (the copy in the Bodleian Library at Oxford, similarly sized, has an ink note suggesting that this issue can be designated thus). This is a significant edition of a vernacular version of the Aesop fables from the 14th century - edited by Luigi Rigoli (1763-1832). Handsomely printed, with a fine woodcut printer's device on title page (and repeated on the verso of the final leaf). A useful list of words and phrases new to Italian in this historic translation, using the registry of the Accademici della Crusca -- ["Tavola delle voci dell'Esopo piu notabili, e nuovi modi di dire non registrati nel Vocabolario"] pp. 110-114. A few stray spots of foxing, but generally a clean and pleasing copy. . (Inventory #: 39611)
