        PIA DESIDERIA EMBLEMATIS, ELEGIIS & AFFECTIBUS SS. PATRUM ILLUSTRATA. Authore Hermanno Hugone Societatis Iesu ad Urbanum VIII Pont. Max. Sculpsit Christophorus à Sichem, pro P.I.P.

      Typis Henrici Aertssenii, Antverpiae 1628 - Testo latino. Cm.12,6x8,5. Pg.(30), 456, (2). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso a tre nervi. Tagli spruzzati. Con 46 "emblemi" incisi nel testo da Christoph van Sichem il giovane. Sempre nel testo 18 piccoli fregi ornamentali ovali, impressi su fondo nero, e numerosi altri finalini. Fresco esemplare. Peter Maurice Daly in "Companion to emblem studies" (Brooklyn, AMS Press, 2008; pg.109) definisce il presente testo "the most popular religious emblem book of the seventeenth century", tanto da conoscere 42 edizioni, solo in lingua latina. Ne è autore il padre gesuita belga Hermann Hugo (Bruxelles, 1588-1629), che compì gli studi di teologia e filosofia a Lovanio. Oltre a insegnare nei Collegi Gesuiti di Antwerp e di Bruxelles, svolse la pratica di cappellano militare al servizio di Ambrogio Spinola in Spagna e morì di peste a Rheinsberg. La presente costituisce la terza edizione dell'opera dopo quelle, sempre stampate ad Anversa, del 1624 e del 1627. Il ricchissimo apparato iconografico si deve alla mano di Christoph Van Sichem le jeune (1582 circa - 1658), uno dei maggiori illustratori dell'epoca, allievo di Jacques Gheyn, e sono ispirate a quelle di corredo alla prima edizione, opera di Boetius Adamsz a Bolswert (Bolsward in Frisia, 1586 circa - 1633), considerato con il fratello minore Schelte uno dei principali incisori a bulino al servizio di Rubens. L'Opera, attraverso le tavole assai significative, si articola in tre "libri" ("Gemitus Animae Poenitentis"; "Desideria Animae Sanctae"; "Suspiria Animae Amantis") in cui si espone il percorso per la salvezza, attraverso i gradini della purificazione, della illuminazione e della unione, accompagnando la parte grafica con i versi di Herman, principalmente ispirati ai Salmi. Le incisioni tendono a riprodurre scene di vita quotidiana, con due putti alati che simboleggiano l'Anima e l'Amore divino. > Praz, "Studies in 17th century imagery", 377. Landwehr, "Emblem books in the Low Countries", 346. Solo due copie censite in SBN. 250 gr. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      BRONZINI CRISTOFORO - Three volumes, 4to; contemporary flexible vellum; (8), 142, (2), 130, (2), 126, (6) pp. + (2), 143, (1), 143, (1 blank), 130, (22) pp. + (12), 216, (8) pp. The first part is known in two different issues, our copy combines the two issues. On the front fly-leaf of the third volume is a full-page drawing showing an emblem with the initial PLC. Some browning, light dampstains, the front cover of a volume has slightly shrank, otherwise a very good, genuine copy. RARE FIRST EDITIONS. Bronzini was made cardinal by Pope Paul V in 1615. He then moved to Florence, where he conceived the idea of writing an ambitious work in praise of women. Della dignità et nobiltà delle donne should have originally comprised 24 parts (4 weeks of 6 days each), but the project was never completed. The first six days of the first week were written in 1618 and published between 1622 and 1625, while the first two days of the second week were printed respectively in 1628 and in 1632. Although already approved by the ecclesiastical authorities, the first book was condemned in 1622 "donec corrigatur" (cf. Index libror. prohib., Rome, 1664, p. 38). It is presumable that the condemnation refers to a previous edition, now lost, or that the edition was corrected while still under the presses. The work is written in the form of a dialogue. The scene is set in the Medici's garden in Rome during a hot summer. The interlocutors are six: three women, outstanding for their beauty, virtue and nobility (Margherita from Rome; Vittoria from Mantua; Leonora from Florence) and three men (the Prince of Tuscany; Tolomei from Ferrara, an opponent of women; Onorio, i.e. the author himself as defender of women) (cf. Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, XIV, 1972, pp. 463-64, M. Capucci). All parts of Bronzini's work are very rare. We are able to offer here the first three volumes. The fourth one, Della virtù e valore delle donne illustri dialogo di Christofano Bronzini d'Ancona. Diviso in quattro settimane; e ciascheduna di esse in sei giornate. settimana seconda, giornata settima, was issued in 1632 by Zanobi Pignoni. Catalogue of Seventeenth Century Italian Books in the British Library, London 1988, p. 155; G. B. Passano, I novellieri italiani in prosa, Turin, 1878, I, pp. 151-53; Catalogo della Libreria Capponi, Rome, 1747, p. 85. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Della libraria vaticana ragionamenti divisi in quattro parti. Ne quali non solamente si discorre dell'origine . ma anco con l'occasione delle pitture Con l'agiunta degli alfabeti delle lingue straniere, e con alcuni discorsi in fine de libri, e della stampa vaticana, e di molte altre librarie si publiche, come private in Roma. Con tre tavole.

      - 4to. (8), 331, (29) pp. With the printer's device on the title-page and at the end, a woodcut illustration of the Vatican library, and several specimens of exotic types (cf. A. Brogiotti e H.D.L. Vervliet, The Type Specimens of the Vatican Press, 1628, Amsterdam, 1968, p. 19). Contemporary limp vellum, manuscript title on spine, new endpapers, lower inner margin of the title skillfully repaired, some light dampstains in the margin of the first quire, three manuscript entries inked out or erased on the title-page, light marginal foxing, but a very good, genuine copy. FIRST EDITION. A second issue was printed in 1608 under the title Vago, e diletteuole giardino di varie lettioni. A year later was published in Latin a more scientific work on the same subject with the title Bibliotheca Apostolica Vaticana by Angelo Rocca (1545-1620), head of the Vatican printing office and founder of the Biblioteca Angelica. The work, one of the earliest treatises on library science, is divided into four parts, each of which contains respectively 40, 16, 9, and 29 "discorsi'. In the first parts is mainly described the new library building commissioned by Pope Sixtus V and realized from 1587 to 1590 by Domenico Fontana, and the other urbanistic works executed by this architect. In the second part are delineated the paintings on the right wall of the Salone Sistino showing the ecumenical councils of the Church (from Nicea to Trent). The third part deals with the most famous libraries of the world as depicted on the left wall of the Salone. The last part are listed all who contributed to the invention of the alphabets as depicted on the pillars of the Salone. (cf. S.F.Ostrow, The Counter-Reformation and the End of the Century, in: "Rome. Artistic Centers of the Italian Renaissance", M.B. Hall, ed., Cambridge, 2005, pp. 287-289). Mentioned is also (Book IV, Discorso XXVII) the Stamperia Apostolica Vaticana, from which were probably borrowed the exotic types shown in the present work. The pontifical printing press, with technical and scientific staff in the direct service of the Holy See, having as its main purpose the publication and dissemination of knowledge of the manuscripts kept there, was established under Sixtus V with the bull Eam semper ex omnibus (April 27, 1587). A little later, the bull Immensa aeterni Dei (January 22, 1588) established a Congregation of Cardinals pro Typographia Vaticana, with the mandate of ensuring that the publications (including editions in the vernacular as well as in Latin, Greek and Oriental languages, in the original alphabets, relating mainly to the Holy Scriptures, the Church Fathers, collections of Papal Bulls, and other ecclesiastical works in defense of the faith) complied with the requirements of the Council of Trent (cf. J. Ruysschaert, La bibliothèque et la Typographie Vaticanes de Sixte V. Projects, étapes, continuités, in: "Miscellanea Bibliothecae Apostolicae Vaticanae" IV, Città del Vaticano, 1990, pp. 343-363). ".per la seconda [opera], quella di Pansa, rimangono oscure e la motivazione e l'impulso: anche se il volume è dedicato al Cardinal Scipione Gonzaga, non sappiamo chi abbia potuto autorizzare il giovane autore a fornire in lingua italiana, un resoconto di un'impresa ediliza e pittorica che era stata terminata, nei suoi tratti essenziali, appena da qualche giorno. Probabilmente anche qui fu lo stesso pontefice, compiaciuto per l'opuscolo di magnificazione poetica che Pansa gli aveva indirizzato nel 1588. e desideroso di completare la gamma delle informazioni celebrative sulla Biblioteca Vaticana, da una parte con il lavoro dotto e in latino, che Angelo Rocca aveva già intrapreso, dall'altra parte con una relazione divulgativa in lingua italiana da affidare al Muzio Pansa" (A. Serrai, Muzio Pansa e Angelo Rocca storiografi della Biblioteca Vaticana, in : "Il Bibliotecario",30, 1991, p. 2).

        De motu cordis & sanguinis in animalibus, anatomica exercitation: cum refutationibus Aemylii Parisani ... et Jacobi Primirosii.Leyden: Johann Maire, 1639.

      Third, but second complete, edition of the single most important and famous medical book ever published, containing Harvey's discovery and experimental proof of the circulation of the blood, which created a revolution in physiology comparable to the Copernican revolution in astronomy. Harvey's discovery was to become "the cornerstone of modern physiology and medicine" (Garrison-Morton). <i>De motu cordis</i> "is probably the most important book in the history of medicine. What Vesalius was to anatomy, Harvey was to physiology; the whole scientific outlook on the human body was transformed, and behind almost every important medical advance in modern times lies the work of Harvey" (Heirs of Hippocrates). This is the earliest edition that collectors can reasonably expect to obtain, the first edition (Frankfurt, 1628) being of the greatest rarity. The second edition (Venice, 1635), published with the <i>Exercitationes</i> of Emilio Parigiano (known as Parisanus), one of Harvey's many opponents, was fragmentary, lacking the plates, parts of the introduction and chapters I and XVI. In this edition, the publisher Maire restored these passages, included the illustrations, and also added the criticism and denials of James Primerose (<i>Animadversiones</i>, 1630) as a separate tract at the end of the book. The text of Harvey's treatise is printed passage by passage alternatively with the refutations of Parigiano.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: S. Cunbert (ownership inscription "Bibliotheca medica 1722" on title); J.W.F. Stoll, Cologne 1796 (engraved bookplate); D. Lemberg, 1838 (owners name on title); Warren G. Smirl (his sale, Sotheby's London, 11 November 1994, lot 166, £18,400); Christie's New York, 14 April 2005, lot 120, $45,600). <br/><br/> "William Harvey (1578-1657), educated at Cambridge and Padua, became a successful physician in London. He was appointed physician to St Bartholomew's Hospital and to both James I and Charles I, and he accompanied the latter at the battle of Edgehill. <br/><br/> "Galen had regarded the veins as serving to convey to all parts of the body the nourishing blood elaborated in the liver. He recognized that both veins and arteries contained blood, and assumed that the arterial blood - clearly differentiable from the venous blood by its colour - was replenished where necessary from the venous supply through the septum of the heart. Sixteenth-century anatomists like Vesalius recognized that the septum was solid. The earliest published reference to the pulmonary or lesser circulation - passage of the blood from the right to the left side of the heart through the lungs - is in Servetus's theological treatise of I553, but as this was virtually unknown to medical men, the first real public enunciation must be regarded as the clear statement by Realdus Columbus in <i>De Re Anatomica</i> (1559). In I603 Harvey's teacher, Fabricius of Aquapendente, published a monograph on the valves in the veins - previously noted by others - the purpose of which he only partially understood. <br/><br/> "It was left for Harvey to combine these discoveries, to conceive the idea of a circulation of the entire blood system, and demonstrate it conclusively by an exhaustive series of dissections and physiological experiments. For twenty years Harvey pursued his objective in both human and comparative anatomy. He proved experimentally that the blood's motion is continuous and always in one direction, and that its actual amount and velocity makes it a physical impossibility for it to do otherwise than return to the heart by the venous route, the heart being itself a muscle and acting as a pump. He showed how the whole of the blood passes through the lungs, is returned to the left side of the heart, then passes through the general circulation and returns to the right side; he even suspected the existence of the capillaries connecting the smallest arteries with the smallest veins, but without the microscope he could not see them. They were discovered in 1661 by Malpighi. The arguments and demonstrations marshaled by Harvey were too cogent to admit of long resistance, and his work was accepted by medical men in his lifetime. Descartes used the discovery as a basis for his mechanistic physiology; English experimental scientists regarded the discovery as of equal importance with Copernican astronomy or Galilean physics; Lower supplemented Harvey's work by discovering the role of the lungs in supplying the arterial blood with air. With all this, Harvey's work did not effect any change in medical practice nor fundamentally alter contemporary views on physiology" (PMM). <br/><br/> It is significant that this edition was published at Leyden for, as Gjersten remarks, "it was in Holland that Harvey received his earliest and most committed support" (<i>Classics of Science</i>, p. 178). In his <i>Discours de la Méthode</i> (published the year before this edition by Harvey by the same publisher, Maire), Descartes had approved of the establishment of circulation, but differed with Harvey in the mechanism which achieved it: "he did not view the heart as a muscular pump but rather as an expansion chamber in which the blood is heated, rarefied and thus forced out of the heart. The Harveyan thesis was defended by an English physician, Roger Drake, at Leyden in 1640 and was further supported by publications from Sylvius (1614-72), Walaeus (1604-49) and Du Roy (1598-1679), all emanating from Leyden about the same time" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 179). <br/><br/> Heirs of Hippocrates 417; Grolier/Medicine 27 (first edition); Keynes 3; NLM/Krivatsy 5329; Parkinson and Lumb 1147; PMM 127 (first edition); Waller 4089; Wellcome I, 3070..

        America sive India Nova ad magnae Gerardi Mercatoris avi Universalis imitationem in compendium redacta

      Hondius, [Amsterdam 1628 - Copper-engraved map, early hand-colouring. French text on verso. Roundels at each corner with inset maps of the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba and Hispaniola, the remaining containing the cartouche. (Expert restoration at sheet edges). A fine example of one of the most celebrated maps of the Americas, the only printed map by Gerard Mercator's grandson Michael. Made by Gerard's grandson Michael to complete the atlas begun by Gerard in 1584 ( Atlantis Pars Altera ), this map is noted for its outstanding design and beauty, particularly its symmetrical configuration of circular insets and Mannerist flow of vines, flowers and leaves surrounding the circular map. Largely based on Rumold Mercator's world map of 1587, this map aptly reflects 16th-century knowledge, theories and suppositions regarding the New World. Naturally, most of this new knowledge was coastal, and configurations of any large areas were greatly hampered by the lack of a sound means of determining longitude. Nevertheless, the collective accomplishment of explorers and mapmakers represented in this map is astounding, showing in a generally correct way the vast extent of the New World. "A few of the most famous theories are still present: a large inland lake in Canada, two of the four islands of the North Pole, a bulge to the west coast of South America and the large southern continent" (Burden). The map appeared in 1595 and 1606 editions of the Atlantis Pars Altera , after which the plate was sold to Jodocus Hondius, who reissued the maps in varying editions through 1639. The present example includes French text on verso (confirming it to be a Hondius issue), with signature mark "S" on verso, suggesting it to be from a 1628 edition of the atlas (see Koeman Me 28a).

        La destruttione di Gierusalemme del Sig. Conte Ridolfo Campeggi, e la prigiona del Santo Sepolcro di Christo, Del Signor Girolamo Tortoletti

      Rome: 1628. Small 8vo (141 x 96 mm). Collation: A-D8. 64 pp. (last page misnumbered ?"94?"). Small crucifixion woodcut on title. Slight browning. 18th-century pattern paper wrappers, blue-stained edges. *** ONLY EDITION. Campeggi's posthumously published verses in 114 stanzas in ottava rima relate in heart-rending images the siege and destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD 70. Descended from a noble Bolognese family, Count Campeggi (1565-1624) was an erudite and prolific author of libretti and madrigals and adept in most poetic genres of the early seicento. His verses, though skilled, bear occasional marks of the overblown Marinist style. Tortoletti's poem in 63 stanzas (pp. 43-64) appeared previously in 1625 (ICCU giving no locations) under the title used here as its drop-title: ?"Il santo sepolcro prigioniero. Lettera di Gierusalemme scritta a Roma.?" In it the personified Jerusalem, captive under Islamic rule, addresses Rome. During the same year Grignani published a discorso academic by Tortoletti on the "Turkish threat": Se l'Italia habbia forze sufficienti d'abbattere l'armi turchesche. The poems are prefaced by a dedication from the editor Federico Grossi to Vincenzo Moretti, dated 15 September 1628. No copies in OCLC, COPAC, etc.; ICCU lists 2 copies, both in Rome (Casatanense & Bib. Univ. Alessandrina). C. Mutini, art. DBI 17:470-72 (Campeggi).

      Elzevier, Leiden 1628 - Unquestionably one of the great book productions of the seventeenth century, if not of all time, and the most beautiful book of fencing extant.

This is a particularly fine sound copy, measuring 20.75 x 15.5 inches, providing good margins throughout. Bookplate of Lewis Richard Ashhurst inside cover. Despite the exquisite end result, the planned work relating to fighting on horseback was never realized. -- Willems 302; Brunet V 815; Lipperheide 2960; Rosenwald 1427; Copinger 4705. 2 books bound in one volume. Part I with 16 preliminary leaves including the beautifully engraved title, portrait, and 9 armorial plates, followed by 33 numbered engravings, all but one double-page, and each with 4-12 pages of explanatory text. Part II with 13 double-page plates and explanatory text. Including the title, there are 57 magnificent plates in all, engraved by Crispin de Pass, Bolswaert, Gellius, Stockius, and more than 10 other artists, depicting full-length figures in all manner of fencing attitudes, the floors covered with mathematical plans, and framed with fine decorative architectural backgrounds. Thick elephant folio, attractively bound in gilt-decorated 18th century calf. [Leyde: Bonaventura & Abraham Elzevier], 1628, though colophon and binding state 1630.

First two titles in red and black, large engraved printer&#146;s device on each, of two angels supporting the arms of Louis XIII, signed Picart on first, vol 1 with very numerous woodcut and engraved arms, vol two with woodcut arms and genealogical tables, small woodcut diagrams in text of third, all with fine floriated initials and head and tail-pieces. Light age yellowing, some leaves slightly browned, minor, light, marginal water-stains in places. Very good, clean, well margined copies, in contemporary limp vellum, slightly soiled, nibbled at edges in places, small stab hole in upper cover, upper edge a bit chewed. An excellent collection of three of the most important French works on heraldry, covering, between them all aspects of that art or science, all corrected and augmented and beautifully illustrated and printed. The first work by Bara concerns the history and tradition of heraldry starting with a general description of the forms in heraldry, with descriptions of the colours and form of arms and the use, meaning and history of the various symbols. The second part includes descriptions of the arms of a whole host of historical and mythical individuals, including Prester John, Alexander the Great, Hercules, and the arms of the Knights of the Round table, who were a significant element in medieval heraldry. (The identification of individuals from the Arthurian legends with particular arms is evidenced from as early as the 12th century, by the 15th century some 200 such arms had been attributed.) He also includes the arms of figures from the Old Testament, Greek and Roman mythology. The work ends with descriptions of the arms of the major houses of Europe and the high nobility of France. Scohier&#146;s work, regarded as one of the best French heraldic treatises, also starts with a general description of the form of arms. It then elaborates a method of compiling genealogies and describes how arms are passed from generation to generation, with significant sections on the rights and laws of the wearing of arms. The final work by Moreau is prefaced by an interesting letter addressed to &#147;La Noblesse Francoise&#148; describing the importance of arms and their heritage to the nobility and royalty. In it describes succinctly the purpose of this work, &#147;de rechercher les raisons des Armoiries tant principals, & substantielles, que parergues, & accessoires, comme de leurs Tymbres, Ordres, & Suports, & puis rebroussant iusqu&#146;a leur premiere origine, tascher de desfricher, & descouvrir l&#146;antiquite des plus grandes, & illustres.&#148;. As stated he researches the first origins of the use of arms and discusses in length the meaning of each major aspect of the design of arms and their first use, their original significance and modern interpretation. It is probable that the three works were put together by the publisher or a contemporary bookseller as they are complementary in design and use and represent the periods best works on heraldry. Brunet states that they are sometimes found together in this form. (Brunet, Bara I 642). 1) BM STC Fr. C17th B192. Brunet, I 642. Graesse I 287. 2) BM STC Fr. C17th S 475. Brunet V 234.

Note: Sir Oliver's privy seal still remains attached to its mounting with the embossed lion (walking and facing left) visible to the naked eye. All three signatures are light from being exposed to sunlight but can be seen without the use of magnification. The document itself is boldly written as the day it was created almost 400 years ago. An interesting piece by the uncle and Godfather of, arguably, one of the most important figures in English history. Very good condition. English politician and attorney to Queen Anne who sat in the House of Commons at various times between 1589 and 1625. He was the uncle and Godfather of Oliver Cromwell, general and Lord Protector of England.

Harvey proved experimentally that in animals the blood is impelled in a circle by the beat of the heart, passing from arteries to veins through pores (i.e. the capillaries, seen by Malpighi with the microscope in 1660)” (G&M). It should also be regarded as “the first record of a complete biological investigation, giving a clear and accurate description of the methods employed to recognise the laws governing an important vital process, a knowledge of which had till then been befogged by mistaken conceptions...” (H.P.

WZ; klarer, kräftiger und gleichmäßiger Druck. - s. National Gallery of Washington, Ailsa Mellon Bruce Fund, 1972.65.3 - Cherubino Alberti: Sansepolcro 1553 - 1615 Rom. Alberti zählt zu den herausragenden Graphik-Künstlern des Manierismus und des Frühbarock. Schon in jungen Jahren beschäftigte er sich mit der Technik des Kupferstiches, vermutlich gelernt bei dem Niederländer Cornelis Cort, der u.a. für Tizian Reproduktionen anfertigte. Die meiste Zeit seines Lebens arbeitete er aber in Rom, wo er zum Direktor des Akademie S. Luca ernannt wurde. Er schuf Kupferstichreproduktionen nach Michelangelo, Raffael, Andrea del Sarto und anderen. Dazu kreierte er eigene Motive und schuf Portraitstiche, u.a von Papst Gregor XII. Im Alter versuchte er sich auch selber in der Malerei, speziell als Freskant. Seine Werke sind z. B. im Quirinalspalast oder in der Sala Clementina des Vatikans zu sehen. Einige Werke wurden nach seinem Tod erneut aufgelegt, so wie das vorliegende Blatt.

        STATISTA REGNANTE

      LIONE, 1628. In 16. Dim. 15x9 cm. Pp. 225. Edizione originale del 1628 di questa nota opera politica scritta da Valeriano Castiglione (1593-1663) appartenente all'antico casato dei Castiglioni, letterato ed accademico. L'opera è un trattato di precetti politici importantissimo per il pensiero politico del seicento. Fu questo saggio a dare maggiore fama all'autore, da allora considerato il primo trattatista politico del suo tempo. Il saggio aveva lo scopo di insegnare ai principi cattolici la ragion di stato cristiana contro le cattive ragioni di Stato di Machiavelli e Bodin. Il modello dello statista per Castiglione era rappresentato da Emanuele I di Savoia, a tal punto che i contemporanei lo accusarono di aver fatto da prestanome per la stesura dell'opera e che in realtà l'autore fosse proprio il Savoia. L'opera si articola in una serie di cinquanta massime che vengono esposte nell'opera, tra le quali: il principe sia considerato nel maritarsi, nel lasciarsi dominare dalle donne, conservi al sua reputazione, non sia crudele, castighi i delitti, non offenda i sudditi, non permetta che il fisco sia rigoroso, sia benefico verso i poveri, si avvertito circa le insidie del veleno, distrugga i fuoriusciti, bandisca i duelli, permetta ai sudditi gli spettacoli ecc... Bella xilografia rappresentante il giglio fiorentino al frontespizio. Collazionato e risultato completo. Alto valore. Copertina in mezza pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso; pergamena applicata su cartoncino ottocentesco. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture e bruniture. Original edition of 1628 of this famous political work written by Valeriano Castiglione (1593-1663) belonging to ancient family of Castiglioni, letterate and academical. The work is a treaty of political precepts, very important for the political thought of XVII century. This essay gave more fortune to the author, from that moment he was considered the first political treaty writer of his time. The essay had the aim to teach to catholical princes the christian state reason against the bad reasons of state told by Machiavelli and Bodin. The model of the statist for Castiglione was represented by Emanuele I di Savoia, so much that contemporary historians stated that the same Savoia who wrote the book under the name of Castiglione. The work articulates in a series of fifty precepts esposed in the work among them: the prince must be careful in marriage himself, in domination of women, preserve his reputation, he must not be cruel, be good towards poor people etc... Beautiful woodcut representin a lily in the title page. Collationed and complete. High value Half parchment cover with manuscripted title in the spine in fair general conditions slightly worn in the edges and spine; parchment applied on carton cover of the XIX century.
