DA SONANO SYNONIMA SENTENTIARUM BY STEFANO FIESCHI

Manuscript Date: 1440-1450

The text of the present bilingual manuscript witnesses the interest in rhetorical composition in the vernacular in the Quattrocento; whereas a number of copies are extant (only one in North America), the present finely decorated and written copy stands out for its important provenance, probably made for a poet active at the court of Lionello d'Este, for its early date of execution, not long after the text was first composed, and for its original un-restored binding. It has yet to be published in a modern critical edition. #0899
