NOTES

USTC 813392;

The edition statement and date are printed on the verso of the first leaf, which is otherwise blank. The title is a caption at the head of the text; The Second Edition was first published in 1530 with revised and corrected text by Bembo, and it follows that this version follows that text.;

Gli Asolani was first printed in 1505 by Aldus Manutius and established Bembo as a major living Italian writer of prose interspersed with poetry. It contains three books of dialogue of love in Italian vernacular, as opposed to the Latin that one would expect.;
