Boccaccio's De Mulieribus Claris

Post by vir litterarum » Wed Mar 17, 2010 6:36 pm

Does anyone know of an affordable(<$50) edition of Boccaccio's De Mulieribus Claris that is not bilingual? It seems like Virginia Brown's bilingual edition is the current definitive one, but I would prefer an edition that is accompanied by an apparatus criticus and does not have a parallel translation.

I know this isn't at all what you're looking for, but here is an HTML copy of the text if you just need to get access to it (or print it). Alas, no apparatus criticus

It looks like most have or are translations. Perhaps the Latin/dutch edition may be best. You don't need to look at the dutch translation and if you don't know dutch well enough to read it well, it shouldn't be too difficult to ignore.

I had, I think, a version of this book from the TATTI renaissance library! BORING! I say BOUGHT because I never finished it.
