Torquato Tasso (dit) LE TASSE

Jérusalem délivrée, poëme traduit de l'italien, nouvelle édition précédée de la vie du Tasse

Imprimerie de Bossange et Masson, Paris 1811, In Folio (28x45cm), (2) ff.-L pp.-(1) ff.-176 pp.,, relié.


Folio edition printed in a small number of copies on large vélin paper. Translated by Le Brun and with a preface from the 1774 edition. The illustrations are from the Italian edition published by Didot in 1784. With a frontispiece and 40 illustrations by Cochin engraved by Saint-Aubin, Tilliard, Delignon, Dambrun, etc. The Life of Tasso is by Suard.
Half red long-grained Empire morocco over red morocco-effect paper, gilt fillets to spine, headpieces slightly rubbed, corners bumped, a little spotting, but otherwise a very good copy with magnificent plates.
This is what Cohen has to say about the illustrations of the Italian edition: “A book published in grand style thanks to the support of the Count of Provence who paid Cochin 40,000 livres for the drawings".
