Edited Book

Lettere ad Angelico Aprosio (1665-1675)

  • Giovanni Nicolò Cavana,
  • Edited by:
  • Luca Tosin,

The critical edition of the correspondence (1665-1675), today housed at the University of Genoa library, between the Genoan patrician Nicolò Cavana and the bibliophile Fra' Angelico Aprosio di Ventimiglia includes an introduction and transcription of the letters, with both bibliographical and (where possible) explanatory notes on some now outdated terms. In consideration of the private nature of the 286 letters, reading them gives an interesting and informal view of seventeenth-century life, as well as much information on the variegated world of the Baroque book culture providing a constant backdrop to the relationship of collaboration and friendship between the two figures.
