Fourth Bernardino Stagnino edition, a reprint of the 1508 edition issued by Gregorio de Gregoris for Stagnino. The latter printed the Canzoniere and the Trionfi also in 1513 and 1519.  The text is based upon the 1501 Aldine edition and is accompanied by the classical commentaries of Francesco Filelfo and Girolamo Squarciafico, appeared for the first time respectively in 1476 and 1484, and by that of Antonio Da Tempo (first printed in 1471). The other commentary on the Trionfi announced in the title and attributed to Nicolo? Peranzone, was actually written by Bernardo Lapini called Ilicino, professor of medicine in Siena and Ferrara and physician at the Gonzaga court (first edition: Bologna, 1475) (cf. S. Pillinini, Bernardino Stagnino. Un editore a Venezia tra Quattro e Cin- quecento, Rome, 1989, p. 65).
