6. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00884
Description: - ff. 6 - Bound by Riviere in red morocco; marbled endpapers. - Written in the hand of the author, Torquato Tasso. This manuscript was noticed in the 1856 Sotheby sale by A. Solerti, Appendice alle opere in prosa di Torquato Tasso (Florence 1892) 61-67, who implied that it might be the one mentioned in a letter from Ludovico Muratori to Apostolo Zeno, 28 March 1735 (that manuscript, however, now identified as Modena, Biblioteca Universitaria Estense, Raccolta Molza-Viti, Filza III, fasc. 9). A note attached to HM 884, f. vi identifies an early owner as the Abbate don Vincenzo Faustini of Ferrara, and states that from his hands the manuscript passed to a Signor Passini from whom a Captain Kühlen bought it in 1850. Another letter attached to f. v, dated 23 August 1855, signed L. Gruner and addressed to Leigh Sotheby, translates an authorization by Captain Kühlen for Gruner to sell the manuscript in London for 50 Pounds Sterling. Sotheby's, 23 February 1856, lot 41 (proprietor unnamed) to Guglielmo Libri (1803-69); his sale, Sotheby's, 28 March 1859, lot 981 with plate of f. 1 to Scalia (bought in); sale by Puttick, 4 February 1863, n. 924 to Abis. On f. ii, the ex libris of William K. Bixby (1857-1931) of St. Louis, Missouri, n. 1290. Acquired from him by Henry E. Huntington through G. D. Smith in August 1918. - C. W.
