SPERONI, S. Canace tragedia. Venice, G. Alberti, 1597. (8), 253 pp. W. woodcut printer's mark on ti. 4°. Cont. limp vellum. (Ties fail, a few faint marg. stains, slightly browned/foxed in places). Composed for the Paduan Literary Academy, the controversial play was first published in 1546. It provoked instant disapproval and lengthy literary debate. The Giuditio, an interesting piece of early literary criticism attributed to Bartolomeo Cavalcanti, was also received with hostility. The present edition comprises the text of the Canace together with the author's reply to the Giudito and other pieces in which he defends his work. - Adams, S-1564.
