Published by In Vinegia [VENICE]: Comino da Trino di Monferrato, 1547 [Colophon] [published date: 1547]. Rare First edition. 4to. 8.5" x 6.75" inches (LxB). Pp. (8), 286, (18) leaves, single sided pagination, numerous woodcut initials and one full-page woodcut illustration, printer's woodcut device to title & final leaf. Fine original contemporary early full vellum binding, elaborately gilt decorated spine with black gilt lettered morocco labels. Rare First Edition in Italian of the first medieval work to treat classical mythology, the Latin
editio princeps, first appearing at Venice in 1472. Boccaccio returned to Florence after the death of his father in the pestilence of 1348, where, under Petrarch's direction, he became a chief agent in the promotion of humanistic studies. Written around 1366, the Geneology is the most erudite of these reference works. Drawing largely from Ovid, the author arranged this mythological encyclopedia of the Greco-Roman deities in geneological format, providing a mine of information for several generations of scholars and writers, including Chaucer. The epilogue contains the first defense of poesy in honor of his own art by a poet of the modern world (Spingarn), and is, according to Garnett what renders this volume really interesting and valuable. The full-page woodcut illustrates a tree, the leaves of which represent the descendants of Demogorgone. With fifteen large woodcut historiated initials, and hundreds of smaller ones thoroughout. Adams B-2174. and Censimento 16 CNCE 6314. A classic work, complete as issued.
