BOCCACCIO, Giovanni (1313-1375). Del Decamerone di Messer Giovanni Boccaccio tomo primo [— quinto ]. N.p.: n.p., 1768.
BOCCACCIO, Giovanni (1313-1375). Del Decamerone di Messer Giovanni Boccaccio tomo primo [— quinto ]. N.p.: n.p., 1768. Five volumes, 8°(180 x 122mm); Vol. 1: [1]f., 19pp., 256pp.; vol. 2: [1]f., 8pp., 237pp.; vol. 3: [1]f., 7pp., 160pp.; vol. 4: [1]f., 225pp., [1]f. [blank]; vol. 5: [1]f., 216pp. 21 engraved plates, including the frontispiece, printed on strong laid paper, numbered in arabic numerals printed in the top right corner. (Occasional spotting.) Contemporary Italian tree sheep, flat spines gilt in compartments, red morocco labels gilt, the sides with a gilt roll-tooled border, edges gilt, marbled endpapers (some scuffs). A rare Italian edition of Boccaccio with explicit engravings, and one of very few 18th-century Italian books with pornographic illustrations. The subjects of the engravings are inspired by Gravelot’s suite for the celebrated Paris edition of 1757-1761. SBN locates juts one copy in Italy, at the Museo Correr, lacking all the plates; WorldCat adds three copies elsewhere, all apparently lacking the engravings.
