VERONESE, Angela. Varie poesie di Angela Veronese Trivigiana.
Venice, Francesco Andreola, 1804
First edition of this collection of poems by Veronese, one of a small number of early female poets writing in Italian, particularly notable for her working-class background and mature discovery of literacy and the literary; a contrast to the more aristocratic lady literati of the seventeenth century.
All rare books enquiries should be directed to Nicholas McBurney at Heywood Hill.
