Description du livre London, The Author, 2015. Soft cover. État : New. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 8vo, (235 x 155 mm), pp. 72; four illustrations; in paper wrappers. Julia Alpinula is a legendary Swiss heroine, whose pathetic fate in AD 69 inspired popular historians, dramatists, artists, and poets – including an infatuated Byron – over a period of more than two hundred years. Her very existence, however, was based entirely on a funerary inscription first published in 1588 and ultimately shown to be a humanist forgery. 'Julia Alpinula' is a fully documented account of her Romantic celebrity, the exposure of the 'Alpinula' myth, and the identification of its scholarly perpetrator. Arthur Freeman is a rare book dealer and writer living in London. In 2014 Bernard Quaritch Ltd published his 'Bibliotheca Fictiva: a Collection of Books and Manuscripts Relating to Literary Forgery 400 BC – AD 2000'. Julia Alpinula is a footnote to that book.
