Publication Details: [Geneva: Joseph Stoer pour les Héritiers de Pierre Aubert & Pierre Chouet], 1550 (recte c. 1640)

Notes: The fourth Testina edition, one of several mid-17th-century Geneva printings. The influence of the Index made it very difficult to print Machiavelli in Italy itself, so editions for the Italian market were often produced in the Protestant cantons of Switzerland - and in 1584, in England. Known as "dalla Testina" editions, so called after the title-page image of the author (copied from the likeness in the Comin de Trino edition of 1541). The Testina editions were all dated 1550. The parts here are bound as they are in the collation given in Adams, but they can be bound in any order....more
