LUCIDORO, Giovanni Niccoló. fl. 1648
De Illegitimis Clericorum
Perugia: Heirs of A. Bartoli and A. Laurenzi, 1648. CONTEMPORARY VELLUM WITH THE ARMS OF CARDINAL ALTIERI, roll and rule outer frame, blooms, foliage and stars in the corners, gilt-ruled flat spine with stars and blooms (base slightly damaged), edges gilt and gauffered, four pink silk ties (faded). Only Edition, the author's only book. Apparently the first substantial work devoted to the bastards of Catholic clergy - ecclesiastics under episcopal jurisdiction, members of religious orders and of papally sanctioned knightly orders. Lucidoro (or Gian Carlo Vincioli) looks at inheritance, the rights and status of the mother, distant and proximate consanguinity, oral and written legal witness, offspring with whores, etc.  Of the ancient Roman noble Altieri family and a trusted Vatican official, the dedicatee (1589-1654) was the older brother of the future Pope Clement VII (r. 1670-76). In good condition (a dozen leaves slightly browned), old Maggs catalog slip pasted in. Not in Lipen or Schulte. ¶Vermiglioli, Biografia degli scrittori Perugini II: 334.
