Comments

Ariosto's masterpiece in an early edition of its important translation into Spanish by Jerónimo Jiménez de Urrea (circa 1510-1574) and published by Macè Bonhomme (active 1536-1569) of Lyons. Bonhomme published an earlier edition of this translation (1550), but it did not contain the scholarly commentary by Alfonso de Ulloa (1529-1570), present here as the second part, with a separate title-page. Urrea's translation of Ariosto's celebrated parody of the legends of chivalry was an important source for Miguel de Cervantes in his celebrated novel about the travels of Don Quixote.
