Madrid: Testimonio. New. Hardcover. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GOLD SEAL IN THE WORLD<p>The secret archives in the Vatican contain the most valuable and most famous collection of gold and silver seals in the world: 81 exceptional pieces dating from the 12th to the 19th centuries. 64 of them are in gold plate, 13 of them are wax seals with gold cases, and 4 are in solid gold. Among the latter is the seal that we have reproduced, which was affixed to a ceremonial document (A. A. , Arm. I-XVIII, 522) sent by Philip II to Pope Paul IV in 1555. Since that date, this work of art has been kept in the Pope's private archive, and is said to be the most beautiful seal conserved in the Vatican. </p><p>The document validated by this seal was written at a critical moment in relations between the Holy See and the Spanish monarchy, represented at that time by Emperor Charles V. The sending of this document and the gift to the Pontiff of an art work containing 800 grams of gold could be considered as an attempt to calm the political tensions between Spain and the Holy See, but it might equally have been intended as a veiled warning from the Spanish prince that the Pope's policies could lead to confrontation with the wealthiest and most powerful monarchy in Europe. In any case, the tensions were not eliminated and the ensuing war between Spain and the Pope and his ally the king of France ended with a Spanish victory at St. Quentin (1557). </p><p>The substance of the letter is in the tradition of the longstanding formal pledge which any new ruler of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies (which inc … [Click Below for Full Description]

FIRST EDITION OF THE THE FIRST BOOK ON THE GAME OF TENNIS, dedicated to Alfonso d'Este (1535-95), last Duke of Ferrara, grandson on his mother's side of Louis XII of France, and on his father's side of Lucrezia Borgia. Scaino, a priest and theologian, was apparently prompted to write his book after a dispute arose during a game of court tennis. In it he establishes rules and a scoring system for the game, sets the standard court sizes, and mentions some principles of etiquette to be practiced between players. It also covers many forms of tennis, his definition of "ball-game" in W.W. Kershaw's English translation (London, 1951) being: "a contest between at least two players who, placed one on one side and the other on the other as adversaries, do battle together with a solid and round instrument made from the skin of an animal and capable of bouncing, called a ball, each doing his utmost to obtain victory for himself … [Click Below for Full Description]
