Specialist Notes

First edition of the best-known work of the Sienese scholar (1540-1612) which begins with an introduction with a Boccaccio flavor and proceeds to investigate amorous questions and doubts. The six short stories that Gaetano Poggiali extrapolated and published as an independent collection are famous.
