Hypnerotomachia Poliphili = The strife of love in a dream by Francesco Colonna ( Book )
27 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is hard to believe that the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, printed by Aldus Manutius in 1499, one of the most famous books in the world, read by every Renaissance intellectual and endlessly referred to in studies of art and culture ever since, has never appeared in English. One reason, no doubt, is the length and difficulty of the text. It is a strange, pagan, pedantic, erotic, allegorical, mythological romance relating in highly stylized Italian the quest of Poliphilo for his beloved Polia. The author (presumed to be Francesco Colonna, a friar of dubious reputation) was obsessed by architecture, landscape and costume - it is not going too far to say sexually obsessed - and its 174 woodcuts are a primary source for Renaissance ideas on both buildings and gardens. In 1592 a beginning was made to produce an English version but the translator gave up after only a third of the text. Now, at last, the task has been triumphantly accomplished by Joscelyn Godwin, who succeeds in reproducing all its wayward charm and arcane learning in language accessible to the modern reader."--BOOK JACKET

"A romance written by the Dominican friar Franceaco Colonna printed by the greatest printer of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Venice, Aldus Manutius, this is judged to be the most beautiful of all woodcut books. It is also the only profusely illustrated volume which Aldus issued. The designer, who has not been identified, displays a knowledge of classic decoration, a sense of beauty in architectural design, and a skill in figure drawing. Francesco Griffo of Bologna was Aldus? type-designer. His capital letters are large and light and his italics narrow and condensed to make the fullest use of available space. There are decorated initial letters. - Binding and restoration of this copy has been done by Douglas Cockerell. The binding is modern white morocco in antique style with brass clasps. The sides are panelled in squares with blind centre tool of an eagle. The calf of the original binding has been mounted in the inner cover linings."--[from 1973 Dysart Exhibition Catalogue]
