Limited edition of 204 copies, of which this is part of a series of 160. Brief and somewhat confusing prefatory remarks on the historical mentions of the fifteenth-century burlesque composition, La Compagnia del Mantellaccio, and its various editions precede the list of thirteen known editions of the work (as cited by the Florentine Accademia della Crusca, formed in 1582) and the facsimile of the first printing. Loosely inserted is a commemorative book label that indicates that this volume came from the reference library of H.P. Kraus purchased by Oak Knoll Books at the auction sale. Two small labels affixed to wrappers.
