2 p.l. & 92 pages; Very scarce first edition of Count Xaverio Broglio d'Ajano's verse translation of odes by Anacreon into Italian. It was probably printed somewhere in Italy around 1790, though there is no date printed. It probably was made in the Marche, near Macerata, where the translator was a Senator in the Repubblica romana. (The date comes from a catalogue entry in the database of the Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo Unico delle biblioteche italiane e per le informazioni bibliografiche - ICCU). This handsome octavo version was printed to celebrate the wedding of Carlo Teodoro Antici de' marchesi di Pesci and donna Marianna Mattei de' duchi di Giove - which does contribute some element of precision to the estimate of its date of issue. It is bound in jolly contemporary wrappers with a printed floral pattern. This is a large copy in original condition, with large margins - at least a few fore-edges show deckles. A few leaves of the high-quality laid paper have a blue tinge; 220 years ago, this may have been printed on special blue paper. The long-lived translator, born a Count in 1749, had to wait nearly forty years to see a regularly published version of this text (published in small 24mo format: (Verona : tipografia di Pietro Bisesti, 1829). This rare undated first edition from about 1790 is not in OCLC, none in the British Library, none in the French Bibliotheque Nationale. ICCU database locates two copies: (Accademia Georgica - Treia; and Biblioteca internazionale La Vigna - Vicenza). A clean unmarked copy, with some splitting to the gutter hinge of the front wrapper, but still attached. Handsome and rare. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. N° de ref. de la librería 39156
