Catalogue Note

Second edition, originally printed by Antonio Blado in Rome in 1535. Abravanel, also known as Leone Ebreo, was a Portuguese Jew whose family left Spain in 1492 and settled in Italy. He probably wrote these dialogues on Platonic love while in Genoa, which he was forced to leave in 1501 because of legislation against the Jews.
