The first problem is to assemble the works of Pucci for there is no complete edition. His writings, some still unpublished, are scattered in a large number of manuscripts and these contain many variants, resulting from the popular nature of his verse, for much of it was meant to be recited in the streets and squares of his native town and in the oral tradition it has been considerably changed and modified. The Pucci manuscripts, with the exception of four one in the Bibliothque Nationale and three in the Bodleian, are to be found in various libraries in Italy, and editors and compilers of anthologies have taken material from thema bit here and a bit therein a haphazard way, printing what suited their purpose and often consulting only one of many manuscripts. Consequently there are different versions of some poems and few are edited critically, though the publication last year of Professor Sapegno's anthology Poeti minori del trecento with its 117 pages devoted to Pucci has remedied this state of affairs for some of the most important. The only collection of Pucci's verseif we discount a group of sonnets and a sonnet sequence, both published by A. D'Anconais that of F. Ferri in La poesia popolare in A. Pucci 1909, and this is a very incomplete and uncritical work but as it includes many poems not found elsewhere, it is essential for reference. Pucci's work in print must therefore be sought in many places in F. Ferri op. cit., in anthologies, in periodicals, in editions of single or of two or three poems, and in many rare publicationsoften per nozze and therefore particularly difficult to come by, because of the few copies printed.
