LA RETORICA DELLE PUTTANE. COMPOSTA CONFORME LI PRECETTI DI CIPRIANO. DEDICATA ALLA UNIVERSITA DELLE CORTEGIANE PIU CELEBRI.
1642 - (Venezia), Cambrai, 1642. (12°), A1 F12, G1 G6. In contemporary half-leather. Ferrante Pallavicino (16151644), Italian writer of lampoons and satires. This work "The Rhetoric of Whores" was written in a manner of a formerly published manual that was used in Jesuit schools (Suarez, Cipriano: De arte rhetorica). Pallavicino made a parallel between the rhetorical persuasion and erotic seduction. In fifteen lessons a miserable old whore explains her life and profession to a "novice". Though "La Retorica" was published anonymously, as all of Pallavicino's works, it was obvious for the Vatican authorities who the author was. He tried to flee from his Papal persecutors, but finally in 1644 he was caught and beheaded at Avignon. Provenance: Nadasdy collection. Not in Dutel. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
