Notes: A striking binding, marbled in a very bold shade of green. The edition is 'printed in the usual beautiful style of the works from Bodoni's press... The Italian translation is considered accurate and elegant' (Dibdin). There were two Bodoni editions of this year, this small-format printing and a larger setting in quarto (of which only 100 copies were reportedly produced, one of them on silk).
