Trionfi. Date: XV century. Size: 7.5 x 11.5 cm. 88 leaves (176 pages).
Bound in red velvet and silk, with among other motifs embroidered in silver relief, cardinalate, surely in reference to the dignity of its last owner, Cardinal Zelada. Very fine miniatures, on whole pages, preceding each of the "Triumphs"; exquisite decoration in the margins of opposite facing pages. Titles in gold lettering, and small initials alternating in gold and blue at the beginning of each triplet. The mounting is of very fine white vellum. Written in old Italian.
The Spanish translation which includes the Spanish Commentary Volume, "en la misma medida y numero de versos que el thoscano tiene", (in the same size and number of verses that the Tuscany has ) is the work of the poet Hernando de Hoces, secretary of the Duke of Medinaceli in 1554.
