Abstract

The author reconstructs the history of the rediscovery, in the Italian antiquarian book trade, of the only known copy of La venuta del re di Franza (Brescia, Battista Farfengo, 1495-1500), which had been lost since 1925 when it appeared in one of Tammaro De Marinis’s catalogues. The edition has hitherto only been known through De Marinis’s summary description of it there; in the present article it is studied and analysed in detail for the first time. The edition is of particular interest from the point of view of its illustrations. Moreover, the bibliographical analysis of the volume enables us to attribute definitively to Farfengo two further anonymous editions which have in the past been hypothetically assigned to Venetian and Milanese printing shops at the end of the fifteenth century: La guerra del Moro e del re de Francia e de san Marco composta per frate Ioanne Fiorentino and La guerra del Moro e del re de Francia (IGI III, p. 61; ISTC ig00539200; ISTC ig00539400).
