Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »

The book is primarily a descriptive catalogue, but it also gives some three hundred short biographical notes regarding Italian writers—for the most part of the sixteenth century—and bibliographical information regarding publishers and editions. The section devoted to Romances of Chivalry, one hundred and twenty-four in number, should be of especial interest to students of this branch of Italian literature.
