        Lo Hipocrito. Comedia di Messer Pietro Aretino al Magnanino Duca d'Urbino. M.D.XXXXII (ma copia manoscritta del XVII sec.). Copia manoscritta da Bartolomeo Amici nel XVII secolo, desunta dalla prima edizione di Venezia, Marcolini, 1542.

      1650. In - 8 (17x11,4), ff. (94), leg. p. perg. rigida seicentesca, titolo su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi. Manoscritto in bel corsivo seicentesco, vergato con inchiostro bruno e attribuibile, per via della firma sul foglio di risguardo anter. e dell'iscr. al frontespizio ("scripsit B.A."), al gesuita Bartolomeo Amici (1562 - 1649), professore di filosofia a Napoli e commentatore di Aristotele. Copia fedele dell'edizione Marcolini (riproduzione della impresa tipografica "veritas filia temporis", stessa dedica dell'autore a Daniello Barbaro posposta al testo e stessa mancanza dell'indicazione numerica nella didascalia delle scene), con una sola e comprensibile differenza nella paginazione (nella Marcolini le carte n.n. risultano essere 72). Nel "Catalogo ragionato di opere stampate per F. Marcolini", a cura di G. Zaccaria (1850), si legge: "Nella libreria De Minicis n'esiste una copia a penna. Il manoscritto sembra del secolo XVII" (p.48). Il presente esemplare è sicuramente quello in questione, appartenuto, appunto, all'Avv. Raffaele De Minicis, bibliofilo e autore delle "Memorie sulla Biografia del Marcolini" che introducono il suddetto catalogo. La citazione viene ripresa dal Casali, "Annali della tipografia di F. Marcolini" (nota 2 a p.136), il quale, tuttavia, seguendo l'errore dell'Allacci (468) e del Mazzuchelli (Vita dell'Aretino), registra come originale un'inesistente edizione di Venezia, Bindoni, 1540. Il Cat. Unico, al n. 2410, registra una contemporanea ediz. 1542, senza luogo né tipografia. Quanto detto è confermato dal fatto che svariate recenti biografie (Diz. Letter. Bompiani, DBIt., ecc.) affermano che ''Lo Hipocrito'' fu scritto tra la fine del 1541 e l'inizio del 1542. La commedia, in cinque atti, in prosa, ha ''un'azione oltremodo complessa, dedotta da fonti plautine, boccaccesche, boiardesche, novellistiche e popolari in genere'' (Renda - Operti p. 66). Bell'esemplare, fresco e marginoso.

        Libro de la Ventura. Manoscritto figurato su carta, XVIII secolo

      1650. mm 385x270; pp. 76 (1 - 48, 56, numerate 74, la prima e l'ultima n.n.); la disposizione del testo varia da una a tre colonne; le pp.1 - 47 e 75 prevedono una cornice formata da un doppio listello in inchiostro bruno; rigatura a secco; cartulazione contestuale al codice in alto centrata. Legatura settecentesca in pelle spruzzata con bordura vegetale impressa in oro ai piatti e filetti oro al dorso. Il codice, vergato in bella grafia posata, tramanda una delle rare attestazioni del Libro di Ventura, "gioco" di divinazione, nel quale, attraverso una serie di tavole preliminari e col lancio di tre dadi, si viene invitati ad una terzina responsiva, pronunciata da altrettanti "profeti", di uno dei venti capitoli che chiudono l'opera. Sebbene al f. 1r si dichiari anonimo l'autore del componimento, puntuali confronti del testo di Lorenzo Spirito hanno permesso di identificare la fonte testuale tramandata dal codice. Il Libro de la Ventura maggiormente noto e diffuso venne composto da Lorenzo Gualtieri (noto come Lorenzo Spirito, Perugia ca. 1425 - 1496), entro il 1482, data anche dell'editio princeps. Capostipite di un genere che avrebbe goduto di una certa diffusione anche nel secolo seguente e più volte stampato, anche in traduzioni, fino al ?600, l'opera è in realtà rarissima a trovarsi tanto manoscritta che a stampa. Posta all'indice dal Concilio di Trento e prettamente di diffusione popolare, dunque soggetta a minor cura di conservazione, delle varie edizioni a stampa dell'opera si conoscono pochissimi esemplari sopravvissuti. Il codice è riccamente illustrato: a p. 2 compare la Ruota della Ventura, primo foglio da consultare quando si vuole interrogare il Libro, infatti agli estremi delle varie parti sono posti i quesiti in base ai quali il Libro può dare delle risposte (se la vita sarà felice o meno, sull'amore, sulla fedeltà del proprio consorte, se è positivo costruire qualcosa, intraprendere un viaggio..), in base al quesito scelto si deve andare ad uno dei re (pp. 3 - 7) che rinviano a loro volta ad un "segno" e ad una tavola dei dadi. Alle pp. 8 - 27 sono raffigurate le varie combinazioni possibili al gioco dei dadi con l'indicazione della sfera a cui andare. In base al risultato numerico bisogna consultare le Sfere raffigurate alle pp. 28 - 47: ogni quadrante della sfera corrisponde ad un numero ed al nome di un Profeta (pp. 48 - 74) e di conseguenza al responso al proprio quesito. Lo stile popolare delle raffigurazioni rende difficile collocare sia cronologicamente che geograficamente l'esecuzione del codice, per quanto sia ipotizzabile una sua realizzazione a cavallo tra XVII e XVIII secolo; l'apparato illustrativo inoltre si caratterizza per una particolare attenzione ai soggetti religiosi (spesso inseriti a fondo pagina come riempitivo).

        Le moyen de parvenir

      1650. - 1650 S.d, In - 16 (6x11,2cm), 439pp., relié. - Nuova edizione. Secondo il materiale tipografico, diciassettesima edizione Bound in pieno rosso fine del diciannovesimo dolore. Torna a nervi giansenisti. Titolo Gilt. Frisia coperta. Bordi dorati. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition. D'après le materiel typographique, édition du XVIIe. C'est la seconde édition décrite par Brunet : "Cette édition, assez belle, se place dans la collection des Elseviers : on la trouve difficilement en bon état." Les premières éditions ne portent pas de date. Reliure en plein chagrin vieux rouge fin XIXe. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre doré. Frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Bel exemplaire. L'ouvrage est un répertoire de contes satiriques écrits à la fin du XVIe dans lesquels ont abondamment puisé Tabourot et le pseudo Bruscambille. L'ensemble est très porté à la grivoiserie et à la paillardise, dans un langage non seulement populaire mais très peu châtié. Il est curieux que ce recueil soit aujourd'hui moins prisé ou recherché que les frasques de Bruscambille ou de Tabourot, il n'a pourtant rien à leur envier du côté de la scatologie.  Ex - libris gravé du XXe : L.

        La resurrezione di Lazzaro

      1650. Acquaforte firmata in lastra nel margine inferiore a destra. Esemplare nel secondo stato di quattro. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione è riconducibile al 1645 - 50 quando Castiglione mostra particolare interesse per l'effetti di illuminazione notturna. A questo stesso periodo risalirebbero sia Tobia seppellisce i morti anche Ritrovamento dei corpi di san Pietro e san Paolo. Un disegno, in controparte, conservato al Copper Union Museum costituisce probabilmente uno studio preparatorio per l'incisione. Dello stesso soggetto Castiglione realizza altri due disegni, entrambi conservati al Windsor, con molte varianti, di cui uno in formato verticale. Etching, signed in the lower margin. Example of the second state of four. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the copperplate, in excellent condition. The etching is due to 1645 - 50 when Castiglione show particular interest in the effects of night lighting. At this same period date back Tobit burying the dead and also the Finding of the body of St. Peter and St. Paul. A drawing, in counterpart, preserved at the Cooper Union Museum is probably a preparatory study for the engraving. With the same model Castiglione made ??other two drawings, both kept at Windsor, with many variations, including one in the vertical format. Bartsch 6; TIB 46.006 S2; Bellini 59. 318 228

        Paesaggio con tre piccole barche nel fiume

      1650. "Acquaforte, 1650 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con parziale filigrana non identificabile, sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Conosciuto come ""il Bolognese"", Grimaldi era probabilmente nato in questa città intorno al 1606 e, in effetti, la produzione degli ultimi anni fu fortemente influenzata dai suoi primi contatti con la tradizione dei Carracci. Si trasferì a Roma ventenne e nel 1636 venne ammesso all'Accademia di San Luca, della quale poi divenne principe (presidente) nel 1666. Nell'Urbe lavorò ad una serie di commissioni importantissime, principalmente paesaggi, per altrettanti patroni illustri tra cui tre papi. Accrebbe in questo modo la sua reputazione, anche a livello internazionale, tanto che nel 1648 venne chiamato a Parigi, dove lavorò per tre anni a progetti decorativi nel Louvre, nel palazzo del Cardinal Mazzarino e nella chiesa dei Gesuiti. Grimaldi realizzò oltre cinquanta incisioni di paesaggi, tutti fortemente influenzati dalla formula paesaggistica di Annibale Carracci e Domenichino. Le sue stampe, così come i dipinti e i disegni di vedute, sono caratterizzate da un approccio alla natura estremamente regolare e controllato, enfatizzando le linee orizzontali, verticali e i piani. Alla stregua dei suoi modelli bolognesi, Grimaldi usava spesso masse rocciose o di terra sporgenti, file di alberi posizionate strategicamente, e architetture posizionate nei piani per disporre il suo schema organizzativo. Il suo modo di utilizzare l'ago da incisione era sempre molto controllato e regolare; sebbene occasionalmente si sia lasciato tentate dallo spontaneo romanticismo alla maniera di Dughet, le sue stampe, diversamente da quelle del maestro, raramente trasmettono un senso di confidenza con la natura. Sebbene il suo stile paesaggistico affondi le sue radici nella tradizione classicizzante di Annibale Carracci e Domenichino, esso riflette anche altre tendenze dell'epoca relative alla pittura di paesaggi, ovvero quella veneta, quella settentrionale e parte del romanticismo di Dughet e Salvator Rosa." Etching, 1650 circa, signed at lower left. Magnificent work, rich shade, printed on contemporary laid paper with partial, unidentified watermark, thin margins, in excellent condition. Grimaldi realized more than fifty landscape etchings, all deeply influenced by the landscape formula of Annibale Carracci and Domenichino. His impressions, like the paintings and the landscape drawings, are characterized by a regular and controlled approach to nature, stressing the horizontal and vertical lines and the planes. Like his Bolognese models, Grimaldi used quite often rocky or earth masses, strategic rows of trees and architectures in planes to set his organizational scheme. His way to use the etching needle was always regular and controlled; though he occasionally indulged in the spontaneous romantic manner of Dughet, his prints, unlike his master's, rarely convey a sense of confidence with nature. The architectural drawings and the figurative paintings of Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi have been completely overshadowed by his landscapes, drawings and etchings. Known as "il Bolognese", Grimaldi was in all probability born in the city around 1606 and, as a matter of fact, his later production was strongly influenced by his first contacts with the Carracci tradition. He moved to Rome when twenty and in 1636 he was admitted to the Accademia di San Luca, of which he became principe in 1666. Once in Rome, he worked on several important commissions, mainly landscapes, for many famous patrons, among them three popes. His reputation grew very fast this way; in 1648 he was called in Paris to work on decorative project inside the Louvre, in the palazzo of Cardinal Mazzarino and the Jesuit church. He came back to Rome in 1651 and he lived there until his death, in 1680. Although his landscape style is rooted in the classical tradition of Annibale Carracci and Domenichino, it also recalls other tendencies about landscape painting of the time, such as the Venetian, the Northern and the Romantic tradition of Gaspar Dughet and Salvator Rosa. Grimaldi worked with Dughet on the realization of the incredible cycle of landscape frescoes in San Martino ai Monti in Rome.

        Laonikou Chalkokondylou Athenaiou Apodeixis historion deka. = Laonici Chalcocondylae Atheniensis historiarum libri decem

Internally very good; a few stray pencil marks. Crack to gutter of e1, e2 loose, with e3 sprung. Lacks front and end endpapers. Definitive source on the fall of the Byzantine Empire, 1298-1463, covering its invasion by the Ottoman Empire and Venice. <br> Among Greek histories of the fall of Constantinople in 1453, the work of Laonikos (ca. 1430â??ca. 1465) has by far the broadest scope. Chalkokondyles recorded the last 150 years of the Byzantine Empire, with extensive sections on the Venetian treachery and conquest. Byzantine â?? European relations are detailed in his account of Emperor Manuel II's journey to Western Europe to obtain aid. In the 1450s, Laonikos set out to imitate Herodotus in writing the history of his times, a version in which the armies of Asia would prevail over the Greeks in Europe. The backbone of the Histories, a text written in difficult Thucydidean Greek, is the expansion of the Ottoman Empire from the early 1300s to 1464, but Laonikosâ??s digressions give sweeping accounts of world geography and ethnography from Britain to Mongolia, with an emphasis on Spain, Italy, and Arabia. Following the methodology of Herodotus and rejecting theological polemic, Laonikos is the first Greek writer to treat Islam as a legitimate cultural and religious system. Significantly for the later concept of Greek nationhood, Laonicus explicitly linked the ancient Hellenes with medieval Greece. Reissue of the 1615 edition, which combined Conrad Clauser's 1556 Latin text with the Greek text by J. B. Baumbach 1615 edition. Parallel Latin and Greek columns. Brunet I.1435. See: William Miller (1922). The Last Athenian Historian: Laonikos Chalkokondyles. The Journal of Hellenic Studies, 42, pp 36-49. An important history of the last days of Byzantium.

        Original Drawing

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Study of Figures, pen and ink on paper, 17.75 x 20.25 cm [7 x 8 in], ca. 1650. With the collection mark lower left of Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723 - 1792), this work possibly being once described as Castiglione's "A heathen sacrifice" listed as #55 in the second day of the Reynolds sale catalogue. With significant areas of paper loss and repairs, rebacked with areas of support sheet showing through. Archivally matted and set in a hand-gilted finished-corner frame under UV plexiglass.  <br><br><br />The Italian Baroque artist, painter, printmaker and draftsman of the Genoese school is best known now for his elaborate engravings, as the inventor of the printmaking technique of monotyping, and for the "course fluidity" of his distinctive drawing style, the latter being on full display in the present fine example. He was known as Il Grechetto in Italy and in France as Le Benédette. A brilliant draftsman, Castiglione pioneered the development of the oil sketch (often using a mixture of mediums) as a finished work. He returned to the same subjects, including that of sacrifice, over and over again, but with significantly different compositions each time. "Collectors and and connoisseurs traveling to Venice...marveled at the brio and verve of execution...even if the works did not conform to the idealizing classicism favoured by many of Castiglione's contemporaries....they sensed that his drawings were at their best when they juxtaposed highly descriptive elements with deliberately unfinished passages." We can date the present drawing to the early to mid 1650s when the style of Castiglione's figures took on a marked and newly pronounced elongation. "In part this was a re-engagement with Genoese late Mannerism, reprising a brief phases seen in the early 1640s but now taking the elegance of Biscaino, Castello and, from a century earlier, Parmigianino to such extremes that the results appear tortured rather than graceful." (Timothy J. Standring and Martin Clayton, "Castiglione: Lost Genius," p. 12, p. 129)

A second edition was published in 1659. First published in 1571 and covering the period of 1550-1580, Plowden's Reports marks the transition away from the cumulative method of the Year Books to one based on exposition and commentary. In most respects it is a precursor of the modern law report. The Earls of Macclesfield owned one of the finest private libraries in Great Britain. Counting both issues, OCLC locates 11 copies of the first edition in North America, 6 in law libraries (Columbia, Georgetown, Harvard, NYU, University of Pennsylvania, Yale).

Junto ao facto de apresentar o relatório da actividade missionária no país de 1627 a 1646 em primeira mão, Rhodes dá detalhes acerca dos usos e costumes dos nativos, suas políticas e governo, recursos naturais, comércio, etc. O jesuíta Alexandre de Rhodes serviuy como missionário em Tonking, Cochinchina e Annam de 1624 até 1630. A missão jesuíta foi muito bem sucedida e milhares foram convertidos ao Cristianismo. Como os misionários jesuítas pregavam contra a poligamia de Rhodes foi expulso em 1630. Ficou dez anos a leccionar em Macau e depois disso voltou ao Vietename de onde foi definitivamente banido em 1645. Viajou de volta para a Europa através da India, Persia e Turquia.

In addition to presenting a first-hand account of missionary activity in the country from 1627 to 1646, Rhodes gives details respecting the manners and customs of the native inhabitants, politics and government, natural resources and commerce, &c. The Jesuit Alexandre de Rhodes (1591-1660) served as a missionary in Tonking, Cochinchina and Annam from 1624 till 1630. The Jesuit mission was highly successful and thousands converted to Christianity. Because the missionaries preached against polygamy, the eunuchs had De Rhodes expelled in 1630. He stayed teaching for 10 years in Macao and after that he returned to Vietnam until he was definitly banished in 1645. He travelled back to Europe via India, Persia and Turkey. He later obtained permission to establish a new mission in Persia, and died at Ispahan in 1660.

        Esto es, Esperanca de Israel. - Amsterdam, Semuel Ben Israel Soeiro, 5410 (i.e. 1650).

      In - 8°; 7 carte (assente la prima bianca), 126 pp., 1.c.b.; testo in spagnolo. Legatura coeva in tutta pergamena. Interessante nota manoscritta al contropiatto anteriore che cita Samuel Pallache (forse il mercante ebreo - marocchino, diplomatico e pirata che fu inviato in missione in Olanda) come conoscente del possessore del volume e ?divulgatore? dell'opera; nota di possesso al contropiatto posteriore: ?Friederich Emanuel Richter 1671?. Ottimo esemplare. First edition. One of the most influential and fascinating texts in the XVII century religious and political debate in Europe about Jewish community. This book contains the account of Aharon Levi, alias Antonio de Montezinos, Marrano traveler: he reports on natives in Ecuador who could be acquainted with ancient practices and rituals of Judaism. The assumption was that these indigenous people were a remnant of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. ?The legend of the Lost Tribes was particularly powerful among Jews... This trend reaches its clear apex with the messianic agitation of Rabbi Manasseh Ben Israel of Amsterdam, in the period between Shabbatai Zvi's first messianic self - awareness in 1648 and his public movement in 1665 - 1666... Manasseh thought a great deal and in short order composed a treatise, The Hope of Israel, containing Montezinos' testimony, along with a detailed theory about how it fit the other known information about the Lost Tribes and the imminent arrival of the messiah. He reviewed the reports about Jews turning up in China and India as well as America, and put together a geographical representation of the Tribes' dispersal. In his endeavor he used Abraham Ortelius' up - to - date atlas, along with works of Wilhelm Schickard, Nicolas Trigault, Samuel Bochart, and dozens of other contemporary European sources? (Goldish). ?The rabbi [Manasseh] composed the Esperanca d'Israel in 1650, had it translated in English, dedicated it to the British Parliament... The religious potential of the rabbi's theories should have been irresistible to the millenarian Puritans... While the Protestant emphasis on the Hebrew Bible led to greater sympathy for the Jews, the monetary advantages that they secured to the Dutch were certainly not overlooked. The economic clout of the small number of New Christians who had secretly settled in England was known to be impressive? (Harris). Sabin 44191 (data errata: 1649). Palau (1926) V, p. 146: "raro".

        Relação do naufragio que fizeram as naos: Sacramento, & Nossa Senhora de Atalaya, vindo da India para o Reyno, no Cabo de Boa Esperança, de que era capitão mór Luís de Miranda Henriques no anno de 1647….

      Lisbon, Na Officina Craesbeeckiana, 1650.. FIRST EDITION. Small 4°, disbound in a folding case of antique quarter calf over marbled boards, flat spine with crimson morocco lettering piece, gilt letter. Woodcut initials. Overall in good to very good condition. (2 ll.), 52 pp. *** ORIGINAL EDITION of one of the narratives that later comprised the @História trágico-marítima; extremely rare. As with all of these Portuguese shipwreck accounts from the mid-sixteenth to the mid-seventeenth century, it was later produced in a counterfeit eighteenth-century edition. Boxer noted, "I have never seen a copy of this first edition and have taken the description from the @História da literatura portuguesa ilustrada, III, 214" ("An Introduction to the @História trágico-marítima," in @Miscelânea de estudos em honra do Prof. Hernani Cidade, p. 86, no. 17A). In some corrections and clarifications to his previous article, Boxer refers to a copy in the Torre do Tombo, gives the collation (which agrees with ours) and calls it "excessively rare" (@Quaderni portoghesi V [Pisa 1979], 107). Innocêncio and Figanière also knew only of the Torre do Tombo copy. The Visconde de Azevedo, mistaking the counterfeit edition for the original, reprinted the former on his private press in a limited edition of four copies at Porto in 1865. The Portuguese vessels @Sacramento and @Nossa Senhora de Atalaya set sail from Goa together in February 1647. Neither was in good repair, and both were wrecked off the coast of Natal, 30 June and 4 July 1647. Each ship's survivors were unaware of the other's misfortune until the company from the @Sacramento discovered the wreckage of @Nossa Senhora de Atalaya. They finally caught up with their countrymen and together continued the arduous overland march toward Moçambique. Of 72 persons who reached shore after the wreck of the @Sacramento, only 5 Portuguese and 4 slaves lived through the rigors of the trip. Authorities in Sofala held the survivors incommunicado for a month while investigating the whereabouts of jewels salvaged from both ships. News of the loss of the ships took a long time to reach Lisbon: the first notice was apparently received in August 1649. Further details were supplied by Bento Teixeira Feo (or Feio, or Feyo), a treasury official in India who later served as Thesoureiro-môr in Lisbon. He had been aboard @Nossa Senhora de Atalaya, and after being interviewed by the Overseas Councilors began to write this report of the shipwreck at the King's command. Teixeira Feo's moving narrative gives details of the shipwrecks and the dangers the survivors underwent as they made their way north. It is rich in description of the terrain, animals, vegetation and native population, which makes it not only an affecting piece of literature, but a crucial source for the ethno-history of Southeast Africa. *** Boxer, "An Introduction to the @História Trágico-Marítima," in @Miscelanea de Estudos em honra do Prof. Hernâni Cidade p. 86, no. 17A.

Zouch was an advocate of Doctors' Commons, Judge of the High Court of Admiralty and Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford. He published treatises on several legal topics, but his lasting fame rests on the present work. Drawing on the work of Gentili and Grotius, it was the first work to treat the law of nations as an ordered system, one in which the law of warfare played a subordinate role. It also helped to popularize the work of Grotius and Gentili and to make international law a part of English law. According to Holdsworth, this book succeeded for three reasons: "In the first place, (.) international law appeared for the first time in a compact and orderly form. In the second place, he so clearly defined it that no one in the future could be under any misapprehension as to its scope. In the third place, he originated the modern division of the subject into Peace and War." He notes, moreover, that "in his book the tradition, inherited from the medieval books, of grouping the whole subject round the rules of war, was finally abandoned." The influence of this study beyond the seventee [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lo Hipocrito. Comedia di Messer Pietro Aretino al Magnanino Duca d'Urbino. M.D.XXXXII (ma copia manoscritta del XVII sec.).

      Copia manoscritta da Bartolomeo Amici nel XVII secolo, desunta dalla prima edizione di Venezia, Marcolini, 1542. 1650 - In-8 (17x11,4), ff. (94), leg. p. perg. rigida seicentesca, titolo su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi. Manoscritto in bel corsivo seicentesco, vergato con inchiostro bruno e attribuibile, per via della firma sul foglio di risguardo anter. e dell'iscr. al frontespizio ("scripsit B.A."), al gesuita Bartolomeo Amici (1562-1649), professore di filosofia a Napoli e commentatore di Aristotele. Copia fedele dell'edizione Marcolini (riproduzione della impresa tipografica "veritas filia temporis", stessa dedica dell'autore a Daniello Barbaro posposta al testo e stessa mancanza dell'indicazione numerica nella didascalia delle scene), con una sola e comprensibile differenza nella paginazione (nella Marcolini le carte n.n. risultano essere 72). Nel "Catalogo ragionato di opere stampate per F. Marcolini", a cura di G. Zaccaria (1850), si legge: "Nella libreria De Minicis n'esiste una copia a penna. Il manoscritto sembra del secolo XVII" (p.48). Il presente esemplare è sicuramente quello in questione, appartenuto, appunto, all'Avv. Raffaele De Minicis, bibliofilo e autore delle "Memorie sulla Biografia del Marcolini" che introducono il suddetto catalogo. La citazione viene ripresa dal Casali, "Annali della tipografia di F. Marcolini" (nota 2 a p.136), il quale, tuttavia, seguendo l'errore dell'Allacci (468) e del Mazzuchelli (Vita dell'Aretino), registra come originale un'inesistente edizione di Venezia, Bindoni, 1540. Il Cat. Unico, al n. 2410, registra una contemporanea ediz. 1542, senza luogo né tipografia. Quanto detto è confermato dal fatto che svariate recenti biografie (Diz. Letter. Bompiani, DBIt., ecc.) affermano che ''Lo Hipocrito'' fu scritto tra la fine del 1541 e l'inizio del 1542. La commedia, in cinque atti, in prosa, ha ''un'azione oltremodo complessa, dedotta da fonti plautine, boccaccesche, boiardesche, novellistiche e popolari in genere'' (Renda-Operti p. 66). Bell'esemplare, fresco e marginoso. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
