584 TASSO, Gio Francesco. Amedeida Poema Eroico di Gabriello Chiabrera, con gli Argomenti in ottava rima. Del Forestiero Idrontino, e Colla Vita dell'Avitore da lui stesso descritta.
Genoa. Benedetto Gualco. 1654 
Bound in full contemp. vellum. 5 x 3 inches. Faded labelling to spine. Contemporary inscription to f.ep. Some gatherings lightly water-stained to edges with no loss. Contents unusually clean and fresh. 229 + 23pp. Chiabrera Gabriel (1552-1638), poet Savona, was a pupil of Paul Manutius and Sperone Speroni, and then serving several patrons in Rome and Florence. His literary and historical significance is that to him, leaning to the recovery of tradition can be traced back to Arcadia. This heroic poem, composed of 23 songs in the eighth verse, tells the fictional business of Amadeus V of Savoy, said the Conte Verde, engaged in the defense of Rhodes against the Turks. The Amedeida became a landmark not only for literary contemporaries, but especially for the eighteenth-century poets attracted to the mastery of several styles. 33847

1859

The poems are by Milton, Spenser, Earl of Surrey, Herrick, Charlotte Smith, Smollett, Shakespeare, etc., etc. This unique copy has been bound in full morocco with decorations in gilt and blind that are found on the ordinary, though still scarce, cloth first edition. All edges gilt. To the reverse of the front free endpaper is the following: "Mrs. Frederick Warne, with best regards of The Brothers Dalziel. December, 1958." Colour ornamental half-title and title page with colour initial letters and decorations throughout. Tinted, very delicately coloured illustrations by Birket Foster, engraved by the Brothers Dalziel. Very beautifully marbled endpapers. Inner hinge partially visible but sound, front hinge previously repaired along lower half. First gathering is slightly proud from the rest of the text. Occasional foxing. A lovely copy of a unique volume from the family of Frederick Warne, the famous publisher. At only 14 Frederick Warne, who was born in 1925, joined his brother William Henry Warne and his brother-in-law George Routledge, in the retail bookselling business which Routledge had founded in 1836 in Ryder's Court, Leicester Square. Routledge started a publishing business in 1843, and in 1851 Warne became a partner in the firm, which was then styled Routledge & Co. From 1851 to 1865 Warne was largely identified with the success of the firm. In 1865, on the advice of the publisher George Smith, of Smith, Elder & Co., Warne began an independent publishing career. He married on 6 July 1852, Louisa Jane, daughter of William Fruing of Jersey and his three surviving sons were the publishers of the Beatrix Potter books. Norman Warne was engaged to Potter but died before they were married. We acquired this from a descendant of the original family who lived at The Mill, the Warne family home. 73041
