This paper provides an overview of the artistic-writing career of Ippolito Ferrarese a storyteller who lived and worked between Venice and many other Central-Northern Italian cities in the early 16th century. He seems to have commissioned a large number of editions, mainly to some Venetian printers who had contacts with street artist (Guglielmo da Fontaneto, Venturino Ruffinelli, Francesco Bindoni and Maffeo Pasini). Most of these works are poetry collections, including Ariostean verses, and popular texts in small-sized, illustrated editions, sometimes with no short titles. A review of the references and front and end matter discovers the authors of many of such editions sine notis. This paper is completed by a descriptive list of references for such editions, some of which had been unknown so far, by Ippolito Ferrarese or commissioned by him.
