Abstract

This first Italian edition copy of Giacomo Rizo-Nerulos’s Course of Modern Greek Literature was printed in Palermo, Sicily, in 1842. It has been bound in red morocco with gold tooling. The fine front cover centrepiece is a gold stamped coat of arms, associated with Ferdinand II of Sicily (1810-59), who was not so fine with his repressive bombardments of Messina and Palermo, thus earning the nickname ‘King Bomba’. Two ornate gold stamps form elaborate corner pieces, and the back cover centrepiece is an ornate wheel design. This book was part of the gift of Italian books given to the library in 1946 by Willi Fels.
