Edges lightly rubbed. xxiii, [1], 351, [1] pp. 12mo. Brown full leather, gilt titles and decorations, top edge gilt, decorated endpapers, frontispiece of author, engraved title page. A survey of poetry by various Italian authors of the 1100s, 1200s, and 1300s, including Dante Alighieri's La Vita Nuova. Edited by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. La Vita Nuova (English: The New Life) is a medieval text written by Dante Alighieri in 1295. It is an expression of the medieval genre of courtly love in a prosimetrum style, a combination of both prose and verse. Besides its content, it is notable for being written in Italian, rather than Latin; with Dante's other works, it helped to establish the Tuscan dialect in which it is written as the Italian standard.
