8° (150x95 mm). Collation: +8,A-Q8. [8], 112 leaves. Italic type. Title-page within an elaborate woodcut frame. Woodcut printer’s device on fol. Q8v. 20th-century green morocco, spine with title lettered in gilt. Marbled pastedowns and flyleaves. Edges speckled red. In excellent condition, light foxing in places, a few spots. Marginalia on fols. G6v and G7r, some reading marks in brown ink. Ticket of the Libreria Mediolanum, and ex libris ‘Paolo Cagnaninchi’ on the front pastedown. The last of the three editions of the Convivio published in the 16th century. In spite of its popularity in the early Cinquecento, the work will be published only again in 1731. From a textual point of view the Convivio of 1531 adheres closely to the Venetian edition of 1521, except for the title-page which here does not bear the woodcut portrait of Dante.Adams D-119; Brunet II, 516; Gamba 419; Mambelli 803.
