a very good set of this first appearance of Chalon's illustrated, manifest in hand made steel engravings with their own tissue guards fine, tan buckram rubbed a tad, else very good, printed on excellent hand made paper laid rag, internally fine. A translation by Rigg of the Italian secular masterpiece based on Boccaccio's experiences during the plague years of 1348, 10 days in exile from the plague in the countryside estate, young men and woman tell tales, to alleviate their boredom, Florentine master secular literature, however, as is encounterd in most English translation, the more ribald sections of tale ten of Day three, featuring the depraved mon, Rustico, and his innocent virgin beauty seeking his spiritual guidance is kept in the orignial Italian verse, a challenge but worth the extra effort to translate. Giovanni born 1312 dead 1378. Boccaccio, basis for two famous films, the first, 1950,starring, Joan Fontaine, and Louis Jourdan , and later in 1970, a master film by the bizarre master, Pierre Palo Pasolini. Size: 4to.
