Charming Italian edition of this five-act adaptation of L'Aminte, published by Nepveu, bookseller at Passage des Panoramas.
It is illustrated with a black frontispiece after Alexandre Desenne and 5 hors-texte and 5 bandeaux printed in color.

This copy contains the French version of the same work, illustrated with a frontispiece, a title vignette and 6 black hors-texte. Some hors-texte are engraved after Alexandre Desenne or Pierre-Paul Prud'hon.
The volume also contains a suite of headbands from the Italian edition in black, the title vignette and a portrait of Tasso.

The vast majority of copies in online library catalogs are illustrated, as this copy is, with a frontispiece and 5 color plates. However, we have been unable to determine whether the Italian edition should contain the black plate after Pierre-Paul Prud'hon.
