Aretin_0004

A late clandestine production of the famous Sonnets by Pietro Arentino. Rather an odd thing, oblong shape and in sheets with the illustrations tipped in, the text portion is printed on Papier d’Auvergne a la Cuve. and has some foxing pages are not numbered, there is a frontispiece (shown above) a 5 page introduction about “Aretin”, and the 16 sonnets. Unfortunately there are only 15 plates, so one missing, but a fun thing to share anyway. If anyone has a copy of the missing illustration perhaps they might like to contribute a copy to complete the listing.
