[Bettinelli, Saverio, Abate].  Tributo di amicizia con epigrammi di maniera greca al sig. marchese D. Carlo Emmanuele Cacciapiatti ... nelle sue nozze colla signora Donna Giuseppa Cacciapiatti. [Parma: Bodoni], 1791. 8vo (16.7 cm, 6.57"). 6, [2], xii pp.
$185.00

Sole edition: Twelve sonnets by a Jesuit belles-lettrist, here in an "elegante e . . . leggiadro" Bodoni printing sponsored by Francesco Cattaneo, who wrote the dedication to the Marquis and his wife. This minimalist production is uncommon: a search of WorldCat finds => only three U.S. institutions reporting holdings (UCLA, Newberry, Southern Methodist).

Brooks 425; De Lama, II, 67. Original orange paper–covered boards, neatly rebacked; minor shelfwear. Page edges untrimmed. Mild foxing, otherwise clean. => A solid copy of this modest, less frequently seen Bodoni item.  (41549)   Please RESHELVE This.
