Abstract

This volume is the first in a new series of luxury editions published by Einaudi. The books are leather bound, with gold tooling, and printed on India paper. In addition to this finery they also contain an introduction and textual notes 'affidate', so the blurb says, 'ai massimi esperti della materia'. The project is clearly an ambitious one and Einaudi should be congratulated for their initiative. However, it saddens me to have to say that Dante Isella, the expert chosen by Einaudi to edit this particular volume, has produced an edition which needs to be roundly condemned.
