        Carte de L'Isle de la Martinique Colonie Françoise de l'une des Isles Antilles de l'Amerique Dressée sur des Plans manuscrits entr' autres sur celui de Mr. Mouel Ingenieur du Roy Assujetis à des Observations Astronomiques et conciliés avec des memoires particuliers de feu Mr Guill. Delisle Premier Geographe de S. Majesté.

      Covens and Mortier, Amsterdam 1757 - Engraved with early outline colour. Printed on laid paper. In perfect condition. Image size: 18 1/8 x 23 1/8 inches. A handsome 18th century topographical map of Martinique This highly detailed map of Martinique delineates the hilly terrain, forests, roads, houses, and even the sugar plantations. The island was to the French what Barbados and Jamaica were to the English: immensely profitable sites for sugar production. Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was the son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. Jean (Johannes) Covens and Corneille (Cornelius) Mortier were brothers-in-law, who carried on the book publishing business established by Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam in 1685. Pierre Mortier's company owed much of its success to his access to French publishers, whose publications he re-issued in handsome editions.The elder Mortier died in 1711; his wife continued the firm until she died in 1719. In 1721, Covens and Mortier formed a partnership, Covens having married Agatha Mortier in the same year. They continued the business by publishing enlarged editions of Sanson, Jaillot, and De L'Isle, as well as some of the later Dutch cartographical masters such as De Wit and Allard, and of course Pierre Mortier.

        The History of the Knights Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem,

      Edinburgh: Printed by R. Fleming, for A. Kincaid and A. Donaldson, Yair and Fleming, and W. Gray,, 1757 . styled afterwards, the Knights of Rhodes, and at present, the Knights of Malta. 5 volumes, duodecimo in sixes (165 x 94 mm). Contemporary calf, dark tawny-coloured labels. Engraved armorial bookplates (by the fashionable Pugh Brothers, Lincoln's Inn) of Marquess of Headfort, most likely Thomas Taylor, 3rd marquess (1822-1894, succeeded to title 1870). Head of spine chipped on volume I, extremities chipped on volume V, old dark stains on back cover of volume I, touch of worming at foot of front joint on volume V (which has not progressed internally). An excellent set, clean, crisp and sound. First small format edition in English, following the two-volume folio of 1728 and originally published in French in 1726. Commissioned by the Order themselves, Vertot's history remained the standard work for two centuries. The Abbé's "talent as an historian was more of a literary than of a critical character" (Catholic Encyclopaedia), which perhaps was fitting for the telling of a tale of such legendary scope and scale. The Order was founded in Jerusalem after the reconquest in 1099; forced from the Holy Land after the fall of Acre in 1291, they settled briefly on Cyprus before being gifted lands on Rhodes. They were expelled from there by Suleiman the Magnificent after a six month siege in 1522, and after a short sojourn on Sicily, the Order was granted the islands of Malta and Gozo by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. In 1565 the Order organized the heroic resistance to the Siege of Malta, the island losing over a third of its population while withstanding a bombardment of nearly 150,000 cannon shots. Even if the Siege did little to alter the balance of power in the Mediterranean, it was the first true defeat of the Ottoman Empire in a century and lifted European morale immeasurably, and such was its resonance that two hundred years later Voltaire could remark; "Rien n'est plus connu que le siège de Malte" ["Nothing is better known than the Siege of Malta"]. The text also includes Vertot's 'Discourse upon the Alcoran', originally given before L'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres in 1724, and his 'Dissertation on Zizim', a historiographical study of Cem Sultan's time on Rhodes. A very appealing set in a contemporary trade binding of plain calf.

        SARCOTIS. CARMEN

      Coloniæ Agrippinæ, et venit Parisiis: Apud J. Barbou [second part: Londres, et se vend à Paris, Chez J. Barbou], 1757. First Separate Printing y. Involving the Belgian poet and philologist Masen (1606-81), the English teacher and scholar William Lauder (d. 1771), and, most importantly, Milton's reputation and integrity, this is the first separate printing of a work of central importance in one of the most bizarre stories in the annals of literary fraud. Lauder's entire adult life seemed dominated by bitterness and animosity: he was the victim of a freakish golfing accident, which led to the amputation of a leg; then he experienced a series of professional disappointments, both in seeking positions and in his attempts to promote the sale of literary materials for use in the schools. In this latter category, one of his setbacks had a tangential connection with the reputation of Milton, and in 1747, to the amazement of the learned world, he published in the "Gentleman's Magazine" a kind of twisted revenge in the form of an article claiming that "Paradise Lost" was largely plagiarized from "Sarcotis," the present Latin poem by Masen (or Masenius). There followed elaborating articles, indignant rejoinders from Milton's defenders, and a book-length consolidation of the "Gentleman's Magazine" pieces in which Lauder claimed that Milton borrowed from no fewer than 18 contemporaneous writers of Latin verse. Eventually, Lauder published another book on the subject, this one purportedly containing actual excerpts from the works Milton was said to have plagiarized. It was a work Warburton described as "the most silly and knavish book [he] ever saw," and it wasn't long before an aroused public discovered that the suspect passages had all been maliciously put into the works in question by Lauder himself. Though Lauder tried desperately to retrieve his lost reputation, there was no hope, and he eventually emigrated to Barbados, where he died in poverty after failing with a grammar school and then a huckster's shop. "Sarcotis" first appeared in print in 1664 as part of a larger work entitled "Palaestra Eloquentiae Ligatae," printed in three parts in Cologne from 1654-83, and it was in this publication that Lauder discovered the poem. Once the Lauder controversy exploded, there was suddenly a demand for "Sarcotis" to be reprinted. The present volume contains the poem in the original Latin, and in a second, separately paginated, part, it contains a French translation of the work and a 64-page account entitled "Observations sur le 'Paradis Perdu' de Milton & sur la 'Sarcothee' de Masenius," which seems to have been extracted from a periodical publication printed in 1754. This is an extremely rare book, NUC locating only four copies.. 152 x 89 mm. (6 x 3 1/2"). 1 p.l., 108 pp.; 2 p.l., 192 pp., [2] leaves. Two parts in one volume. First Separate Printing. Contemporary mottled calf, blind-ruled borders, flat spine with gilt compartments featuring foliate thistle centerpiece, morocco label, marbled endpapers. Woodcut illustrated title page, headpieces, and tailpieces. Graesse IV, 436; Brunet III, 1515. Joints a bit flaked, tail of front joint with quarter-inch crack, leather just slightly crackled and a bit soiled, but an excellent copy, the rather pretty binding sturdy and still bright, and THE TEXT BOTH IMMACULATE AND EXTRAORDINARILY FRESH. Involving the Belgian poet and philologist Masen (1606-81), the English teacher and scholar William Lauder (d. 1771), and, most importantly, Milton's reputation and integrity, this is the first separate printing of a work of central importance in one of the most bizarre stories in the annals of literary fraud.

        Origen de los dos celebres santuarios de la Nueva Galicia, obispado de Guadalaxara en la America Septentrional. Noticia cierta de los Milagros Favores que hace la Santissima Virgen

      Second edition, the first was published in 1694 (with lesser illustrations). A beautiful Mexican colonial printing, handsomely illustrated with three full-page plates. Florencia´s is an important source for the history of Guadalajara and Nueva Galicia (current Jalisco, Zacatecas, Colima, and Aguascalientes), and the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Tzapopán and San Juan de los Lagos Churches. Florencia (1620 - 1695) was a Florida born Jesuit Priest, theologian, historian and writer -as evidenced by this work. An interesting aspect of his ascendance is the fact that he unequivocally promotes indigenous Saints, preaches on the virtues of the Mexican people, and praises the labour of the Jesuits. A fierce defender of the cultural independence of Americans, he may be considered instrumental to the establishment of a separate Mexican national identity. Dedicated to Francisco de S. Buenaventura Martinez Texada, Bishop of Yucatan and Guadalaxara. The engravings are: 1- "Milagrosa Imagen de Na. Sa. de Tzapopan", showing the Lady of Zapopán wearing a crown and a halo stands, the Virgin of Zapopan is said to have interceded between the Spanish and the native population during the European conquest of Mexico; 2- "Hac Crux Gentiles, qui nollunt esse Salutis Ut credant Signum, credere nata docet", showing the Prodigious Grass Cross of Tepic; and "V.R. de la Milagrosa Ymagen de Na. Sa. Juan de los Lagos" portraying the Virgin of San Juan of the Lakes. A half page woodcut displays the arms of Francisco de San Buenaventura Martínez de Texada Diez de Velasco, Bishop of Yucatan. The work proved popular and a best seller, with 6 editions published up to the 18th century. "The Prodigious Grass Cross of Tepic is exceptionally interesting and highly unusual, giving a birds-eye view of the Tepic region, the Cross, and its history, with a precision and attention to detail one might expect to find in a map rather than in the rendering of a miracle... The engravings and their accompanying text all deal with themes indigenous to Mexican Catholicism." (Dorothy Sloan). Medina, México, 4406. Palau, 92349. Sabin, 24816.

        Le Décameron. 5 vols.

      A Londres (i.e. Paris, Prault) 1757 - With 5 engr. pictorial titles, engr. frontispiece portrait of Boccaccio in vol. I, 110 plates, and 97 tail-pieces after Gravelot, Boucher, Cochin and Eisen, engr. by Aliamet, Baquoy, Flipart, Legrand, Lemire, Lempereur, a.o., engr. lettered head-pieces. 8vo. Contemp. red morocco, flat spines with two labels richly gilt, triple gilt fillet around sides with corner fleurons, outer and inner gilt dentelles, edges gilt. With engr. heraldic exlibris (name erased). A Londres (i.e. Paris, Prault), 1757-61. Superb set of this sought-after edition, one of the most exquisitely illustrated French publications of the time. It uses the French translation of the 16th-century writer Jean-Antoine Le Maçon who prepared it for Marguerite de Valois, and contains the "Vie de Jean Bocace, poete Florentin" by Philippe-Matthieu Villani. Prault published an Italian version the same year, with the same illustrations, which is dated 1757 throughout and, according to the bibliographers, takes precedence. "Un des livres illustrés des plus réussis de tout le XVIIIe siècle" (Cohen, p. 158). Most illustrations are the work of Gravelot (Hubert-François Bourguignon). Ray writes that "though other artists participated in its illustration, the 'Decarmeron' belongs to Gravelot. He designed 89 of its 111 plates and all 97 of its tailpieces, the most extensive undertaking of his career as an illustrator. Boccaccio's lively tales of varied action and amorous intrigue were well suited to Gravelot's temperament. The convention by which he transposed their settings and costume to the France of his own day made it possible for him to exercise his special talent for depicting the social world around him". - Cohen/de Ricci 160-61; Lewine 70-71 ("more valued in France than the original Italian edition"); Sander 183 ("plus recherchée"); Quérard, La France littéraire I, 361.

      Edinburgh: printed for G. Hamilton & J. Balfour 1757 - 8vo., viii + 179 + (1)pp., in a very good mid-20th century binding of half calf over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt by Sangorski and Sutcliffe> in London, uncut. A fine copy. First edition: second printing (a reissue of the sheets of the 1756 1st ed., with a new title-page). Rothamsted p.75 (where it calls this 1757 printing the 1st ed.). Goldsmiths 9219. Higgs 1391. Only later editions in Perkins. An important contribution to agricultural science which was described by Professor Launcelot Hogben (Science and the Citizen>) as a 'pioneer work that bore fruit in the lectures of Humphrey Davy'. An Edinburgh doctor and 'close friend of Dr. J. Black, professor of chemistry at Glasgow, Home set out to discover 'how far chemistry will go in settling the principles of agriculture', and carried out pot experiments to discover the best types of fertilizers, though his interest in chemistry was not confined to agriculture. He perceived that there were two ways of investigating plant chemistry - the one to find out what the plant contained; the other pot experiments, and he did valuable work, but with a wide margin of error. Sir John Russell, in Soil Conditions and Plant Growth,> says: 'The book is a great advance on anything that had gone before it, not only because it recognizes that plant nutrition depends on several factors, but because it indicates so clearly the two methods to be followed in studying the problem - pot cultures and plant analysis. The problem, indeed, was carried as far as was possible until further advances were made in plant physiology and chemistry.' Home made a very real contribution to agricultural science.' [G.E. Fussell, More old English farming books,> pp.36-7]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Braccio di città pensile e navigata al di sotto

      Acquaforte, bulino e puntasecca, 1757, firmata in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con ampli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Versione ridotta del frontespizio originale del volume IV delle Antichità Romane. Per la prima volta inclusa nelle Lettere di Giustificazione, questo esemplare è tratto da Opere Varie circa 1760. 'Lettere di Giustificazione scritte a Milord Charlemont'. L'elemento essenziale che caratterizzava il Piranesi era quel certo gusto per la polemica che finì per contraddistinguere gli ultimi trenta anni della sua vita e che allo stesso tempo diede linfa vitale e fu la base delle sue geniali creazioni. L'arma preferita per gli spunti polemici non erano però le parole, ma le immagini; il cercare di accusare, difendersi e polemizzare attraverso la grafica diede origine ad alcune tra le sue opere più sensazionali. Le Lettere di Giustificazione, ritenute la più importante opera polemica, sono basate sulle lettere scritte al nobiluomo irlandese Lord Charlemont, che oltre a non aver mantenuto la promessa di finanziare le Antichità Romane, ignorava totalmente le lettere di protesta inviategli dal Piranesi. Il testo dell'opera, pubblicata a Roma nel 1757, riproduce due delle lettere a Charlemont, oltre ad un'altra indirizzata a Padre Peter Grant, che si era proposto come paciere nella disputa. L'opera sintetizza problemi ben più seri di un semplice litigio, rappresentando i mutamenti che intervengono nei rapporti tra artisti e mecenati nella seconda metà del diciottesimo secolo. L'artista, che con il suo lavoro si proponeva di lasciare un segno importante ai posteri documentando i reperti relativi alla storia romana, si riteneva meritevole del rispetto di Lord Charlemont. Pertanto questo lavoro di protesta teneva a dissociare il nome del nobile irlandese dalle Antichità Romane, essendo per queste un indegno patrono, al punto tale che il Piranesi ne aveva già cancellato dal frontespizio del primo volume la scritta con cui gliele dedicava. Nell'opera l'artista, oltre ad alcune vignette satiriche sul conto del Charlemont, riprodusse in piccolo formato i quattro frontespizi principali contenuti nel principale lavoro archeologico. Questi piccoli capolavori, suscitarono molto entusiasmo nell'artista, che decise di inserire le lastre nella nuova edizione di Opere Varie pubblicata all'inizio degli anni sessanta. Etching, engraving and drypoint, 1757, signed on plate. A magnific impression, on contemporary laid paper, wide margins, very good condition. Plate pubblished in the 'Lettere di Giustificazione scritte a Milord Charlemont'. The primary attitude which characterised Piranesi's personality was an unequivocal disposition towards controversy, which distinguished the last thirty years of his life and, at the same time, furnished him with the indispensable vigour and constituted the foundations which were necessary for his outstanding achievements. However, his favourite means for upholding debates were not words but pictures, and his attempts to blame, defend himself and contend gave rise to some of his most extraordinary works. The first of these was the one under scrutiny, which included the letters written to the Irish aristocrat Lord Charlemont who, not only had not kept his promise to fund the Antichità Romane..., but also completely disregarded the complaint notes which Piranesi sent him. The text of the Lettere di Giustificazione..., published in Rome in 1757, reproduced two of his letters to Charlemont together with another one addressed to Father Peter Grant, who had volunteered to settle the question. This work outlined problems which were far more serious than a simple quarrel, delineating the changes which came about in the relationships between artists and their sponsors in the second half of the eighteenth century. The artist who, with his project, wanted to leave behind him an important milestone by describing ancient vestiges of Roman history, judged himself worthy of Lord Charlemont's esteem. Therefore, this work of complaint had the aim of separating the Irish aristocrat's name from the Antichità Romane... since he was regarded as an unworthy patron. This was true up to the point that Piranesi had cancelled from the title-page of the first volume the text with which he had dedicated it to him. In this work, apart from a few satirical vignettes concerning Charlemont, the artist reproduced small-size versions of the four main title-pages included in his primary archaeological composition. These diminutive masterpieces generated considerable excitement in the artist, who decided to include the plates in the new edition of the Opere Varie... published at the beginning of the 1760s.

RARE AND IMPORTANT. THE FIRST EDITION OF THE COMPLETE WORKS OF DANTE AND THE GREATEST ILLUSTRATED DANTE EVER CONCEIVED. Zatta?s Dante, a supreme production of the press and one of the great Italian illustrated books of the 18th century, also represents the first complete offering of Dante?s work. It is considered the most perfect and complete of Dante ever printed. And generally speaking, it is considered the most beautiful edition of Dante ever produced. Most copies were bound in period vellum and have suffered significantly. This copy, bound in rare period calf over boards has survived in a fine state of preservation. ?Dante?s theme, the greatest yet attempted in poetry, was to explain and justify the Christian cosmos through the allegory of a pilgrimage. To him comes Virgil, the symbol of philosophy, to guide him through the two lower realms of the next world, which are divided according to the classifications of the ?Ethics? of Aristotle. Hell is seen as an inverted cone with its point where lies Lucifer fixed in ice at the centre of the world, and the pilgrimage from it a climb to the foot of and then up the Purgatorial Mountain. Along the way Dante passes Popes, Kings and Emperors, poets, warriors and citizens of Florence, expiating the sins of their life on earth. On the summit is the Earthly Paradise where Beatrice meets them and Virgil departs. Dante is now led through the various spheres of heaven, and the poem ends with a vision of the Deity. The audacity of his theme, the success of its treatment, the beauty and majesty of his verse, have ensured that his poem never lost its reputation. The picture of divine justice is entirely unclouded by Dante?s own political prejudices, and his language never falls short of what he describes.? PMM

Exemplaire aux armes frappés sur les plats de Emmanuel-Félicité de Durfort, duc de Duras Reliures en plein veau blond glacé et marbré d'époque. Dos à nerf orné au fer du lion rampant du duc de Duras. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, pièce de tomaison de basane noire très frottée. Coiffe de tête du tome II arrachée. Fente au mors supérieur avec manque en coiffe. Epidermure au mors supérieur en queue du tome I, en du mors inférieur en queue du tome II. 3 coins émoussés. Malgré les défauts annoncés, agréable exemplaire. Edition en volumes des articles parus dans le périodique éponyme en 1753 et 1754. Le collectif réuni autour de Edward Moore rassemble Horace Walpole, le Comte de Chesterfield, George Lyttelton, et Soame Jenyns. Ces derniers ont suivi la verve et la veine satyrique déployées dans Le Spectateur dans un nouveau périodique, destiné à railler particulièrement les moeurs anglaises et la bêtise universelle, dans la lignée de Swift.

A good copy, with the bookplate, engraved by Evans, of Robert Cunliffe on the front paste-down end-paper. THe Monthly Review commented, "We bestow alms upon cripples, to relieve their bodily wants; nor is it less kind to contribute some amusement to those who labour under a poverty of mind, or a debility of understanding: that both, being burdens to themselves as well as society, may be enabled to pass that time as easily as possible, which both may be desirous to kill. For this end these poetical tales are calculated, and are a collection purloined from many Authors, as Priori, Swif, Gay, Allan Ramsay, and others, as well as from collections with the same nature as itself."

Provenance: Didier (signature to first flyleaf in each vol.). ----NLM/Blake, p. 61; Garrison-M. 3673.1; Wellcome II, 213; Waller 10578. FIRST EDITION. "An excellent book on dentistry appeared in France in the year 1757, the work of Bourdet, a celebrated and elegant writer, in whom the gifts of literacy and scientific culture were coupled with a vast experience and a profound spirit of observation." (Guerini, History of Dentistry, Amsterdam, 1967, p. 309). "Bourdet's greatest contributions were to dental prosthetics. He also described severe periodontoclasia and his treatment of the condition similar to modern gingivectomy" (Garrison-M). "According to Bourdet, the teeth are so apt to decay, partly because of the frequent changes of temperature to which they are exposed, and partly because, differently from the bones, they are not provided with any protective organic covering. In many cases of caries, Bourdet extracted the tooth, filled it with lead or gold leaf, and replanted it; but if, in extracting, the alveolus had been injured, he replanted the tooth immediately, to preserve the alveolus from the damaging action of the air, and carried out the stopping at a later time. . . Bourdet made prosthetic pieces. . . but one of his principal merits is that of having brought artificial plates to perfection by fixing them not, as heretofore, to the opening of the palate or inside the nose, but by means of lateral clasps fitted to the teeth" (Guerini, History of Dentistry, Amsterdam, 1967, pp. 309-10). Very Good.

        Disegno della Prima Machina rappresentante i Magnifici Portici d'Athene.

      1757 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1757. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini irregolari, per il resto in buone condizioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per Charles II decree of the 12 of May 1691, the Greats of Spain were obliged to take part to the cortege, which was then followed by two series of pyrotechnical shots and music, dances an
