1 Sonzogno, Edoardo (editor) Il Romanziere Illustrato : Giornale Settimanale (Anno III - 1867)
Milan, Italy Edoardo Sonzogno 1867 Hard Cover 
In Very Good condition. Brown and tan marbled boards quarterbound in contemporary calf. The spine is stamped decoratively in gilt. Quarto. 415pps, (417 - 832). This volume consists of 26 weekly issues of 'Il Romanziere Illustrato,' dating from 10 July to 26 December, 1867, with each issue being sixteen pages in length and lushly illustrated in woodcuts by various artists. There is rubbing wear to the binding, particularly along the edges, joints, and the corners. The binding is sound and square. Internally in excellent condition with very light and sporadic foxmarks. No signatures or inscriptions. Founded in 1863 when the kingdom of Italy was but two years old, as were its first newspaper stands (situated behind the Dome and on the square of the Scale), publications such as this were launched to help bring culture and literature to the masses. Sonzogno, along with Treves, were the greatest and most successful publishers-printers-editors of the day in this optimistic new kingdom. Includes entries from 'Il Marchese di Villemer' (by Georgio Sand), 'I Cacciatori di Capigliature' (by Captain Mayne-Reid), 'La Macchia di Sangue' (by Manuel Fernandez Y Gonzalez), 'Giovanni delle Bande Nere' (by Luigi Capranica), 'Piquillo Alliaga' (by Eugenio Scribe), and 'La Pena del Taglione' (by Carlo De Bernard).
