Francesco Petrarca, "Li Sonetti canzone e triumphi del Petrarcha con li soi commenti non senza grandissima euigilantia et summa diligentia correpti et in la loro primaria integrita et origine restituti nouiter in littera cursiua studiossimamente impressi ", printed in 1513 in Venegia by Bernardino Stagnino. 

"Standing within the threshold of the middle ages, Petrarch surveyed the kingdom of the modern spirit, and, by his own inexhaustible industry in the field of scholarship and study, he determined what we call the revival of learning." (Encyclopedia Britannica )

The woodcuts are those of Gregorio edition, in finer engraving and the addition of borders." (Fiske). Marsand and Graesse note this edition based on the celebrated 1472 Padua edition, produced from the autograph manuscript. The Trionfi have a special t.p. and include the six woodcuts designed for Gregorio's edition but here in finer engraving and with borders. Preceeded by the text of "Vita", a biography of Petrarch written by Antonio da Tempo and a dedication to "Federico Marchese di Mantua".
