Aretino.

Stampati in Cosmopoli (Leide or Amsterdam, Elzevier), l’Anno 1660.

Small 8vo, contemporary vellum with overlapping edges. 541 pp. (of which the title with a small square fleuron), one blank, 38 pp. for « La Puttana errante ». Complete.

First Elzevier edition of the Ragionamenti, with at the end, the second edition (in 38 pp.) of the Puttana errante.

One of the most sought-after editions of this famous licentious text by Pietro Aretino (1492-1556), the most celebrated work of Renaissance erotic literature; la “Puttana errante” is regarded as “the first imaginative prose work which deals directly and exclusively with physical sexual satisfaction” (Foxon).

A very good copy.
