Contemporary full calf, ornamented gilt spine with nerves, gilt coat of arms on the boards. First Edition of the French translation.This volume accounts the history of the rebelion of Naples against Spain and the administration of the Spanish vice-king Rodrigo Ponce de Leon, Duke of Arcos. The hero of this rebelion was Tomaso Aniello (1623-1647), also known as "Masianello", a young fisherman who eventually became the symbol and spokesperson of the Napolitan people. However, proving to be unable to drive the popular riot, and betrayed, he lost his mind (maybe poisoned) and was murdered.The tragical story of Masianello produced a consistent iconography and various literary works.A nice copy bound with the coat of arms of Alexandre de La Rochefoucauld, Duke of La Roche-Guyon (1690-1762). On the title page, stamp of the library of La Roche-Guyon.
