RARE FIRST EDITION dedicated by the translator Giacomo Antonio Bianchini to Nicolò Brognonico (Verona, December 1, 1595). The original Latin poem, Fluviorum conventus, already printed by Discepolo in the previous year, is found on the last 4 leaves of the volume after the Italian blank verse version.
Little is known about Flaminio Valerini, a Veronese poet of whom are known several occasional verses, mostly addressed to local noblemen. He probably also had good ties to several Venetian rulers as Leonardo Mocenigo and Marino Grimani (cf. S. Maffei, Verona illustrata, Milano, 1825, III/2, p. 428).
