Summary

This is a manuscript copy of a famous ode to Guidobaldo of Montefeltro (1472-1508) by Baldassarre Castiglione (1478-1529). Circumstantial evidence suggests that the text was written in the summer of 1508. The text is dedicated to King Henry of England (Henry VII as per the 1513 Petrucci printed edition). The volume's fine humanist script and the decoration and coats-of-arms on the first page, together with the early English ownership marks, suggest that it was the presentation copy brought to England and offered to the king. The scribe and the illuminator have been identified by C.H. Clough (1978, p. 270) as Federigo Veterani (c. 1450-1530).
