Amenta, Niccolo. De rapporti di Parnaso. Parte prima [= all published].

Naples, Giacomo Raillard, 1710.

4to. (24), 168, (24) pp. Contemporary vellum with ms. spine title.


Only edition. "This work is an imitation of Boccalini's 'Ragguagli di Parnaso', with this difference, however, that Boccalini introduces political discussions in his work, while Amenta, more true to his title, confines himself to literary disquisitions and criticism [...] Amenta was considered one of the most correct and elegant Italian writers of his age" (Biograph. Dict. of the Society for the Diff. of Useful Knowledge II.2 [1843], p. 454f.).

Slight worming. From the library of the Ducs de Luynes at the Château de Dampierre: their bookplate reproducing the arms of Charles Marie d'Albert de Luynes (1783-1839), 7th Duc de Luynes, on pastedown.
