THE DECAMERON OF GIOVANNI BOCCACCIO

First Bumpus edition. 2 vols, plus supplementary folder of additional plates. Publisher's original red cloth with gilt decoration to the upper board and titles to the spine. Top edge gilt, the others untrimmed. Illustrated with 12 (mostly erotic) photogravures by Louis Chalon, plus 8 more supplied loose in the supplementary folder. Also included is a translation of pp.252-253 of volume one (traditionally left untranslated due to its ribald nature). A very good set, the bindings square and firm with fading to the spines. The contents with the occasional dot of foxing to a few page margins are otherwise clean throughout and free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps. An attractive set.
