(Officina Bodoni)

A Letter in Praise of Verona.

Verona: Officina Bodoni, 1974. Tall octavo. (58)pp. One of 150 copies. Contains the English text, which was translated from the Latin by Betty Radice. Unlike the rare incunable from which this text is taken, which was printed in 1489 by Paulus Fridenperger, Mardersteig here makes use of several beautiful decorations which were the work of the 15th century scribe Felice Feliciano, including a rather striking initial "S". A fine copy in quarter vellum and blue Roma paper boards with woodcut pattern in white. T.e.g. Housed in publisher's slipcase. Typed letter in German from the Press laid in. Item #28609

(Mardersteig 190).
