“Books have led some to learning and others to madness.”

― Francesco Petrarch

 

Petrarch was a 14th-century Italian humanist known for his discovery of the letters of Cicero and establishment of the study of humanism. He wrote sonnets and poems, many of which were the model of poetry during the Dark Ages. One of his most unique works was ‘Il Canzoniere’, a work of sonnets and poems written in Italian rather than the more accepted Latin. These poems are often considered Petrarch’s best works much in part to his use of references to Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’ and Virgil’s ‘Aeneid’.

 

This 1558 Lyon edition is a notable pocket edition of a famous piece of Italian literature.
