Giovanni BOCCACCIO (Jean BOCCACE)

I casi degl'huomini illustri. Di messer Giovan Boccaccio. tradotti ... in volgare per M. Giuseppe Betussi. Con vna nuoua giunta fatta per Messer Francesco Serdonati

Per Filippo Giunti, In Fiiorenza (Florence) 1598, in-8 (10,5x16,5), (32) 828pp. (50), relié.


First Edition. Rare. Printing Florentine Italics. Sheepskin half black middle nineteenth. Author, title and golden time. Friction. Copy costs. This work of Boccaccio was originally written in Latin, De casibus virorum illustrium, ie Illustrious Men. Under the influence of Petrarch, Boccaccio returned to Latin in the latter part of his work (between 1365 and 1366) and left the Tuscan for which he had done so much. It was during this contemporary that he composed the biography of treaties as genealogia De deorum, which brings together for the first time all the mythological notions. The book was dedicated to e Cosimo de Medici. These illustrious men are biased to Greek and Roman Antiquity (The first copies of the Iliad and the Odyssey are due to Boccaccio, who brought them to Greece.) And the Old Testament. Among the characters we see Agamemnon, Cadmus, Jocasta, Priam, Saul, Atalie, Xerxes, Alcibiades, Cicero, Cleopatra, Brunhilde ... Some portraits are followed by a reflection on the abuses of tyranny or passion, wealth, or other excesses. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
