A rare edition of this short novel by the Ferrarese Baruffaldi, well-known author of Dell'Istoria di Ferrara (1700), which was originally written in 1708 under the name of Antonio Tibaldeo. As the editor Aurelio Carrara states in his preliminary address, this ‘bibliographical rarity' was issued in only thirty numbered copies, mainly intended to be distributed among friends. A few copies were printed, as here, on blue paper, while a copy on vellum was issued for the editor. This is copy no. 30.
