There were numerous versions of the romance of Oliver and Arthur, this adaptation by Floresta being one of them; the first edition of Floresta's story appeared circa 1700, and was followed by a few others in the 18th and 19th centuries. This particular edition is the third.
Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.
Palau 200858. Contemporary limp vellum a bit too short for the text block. Title-page soiled and small piece torn from lower outer corner; text block separating from binding at the front hinge (inside). Browning (sometimes heavy) from impurities in water during paper manufacture. NOT a beauty, but, therefore, relatively affordable/possessable. (Inventory #: 38640)
