Compendio delle Historie del regno di Napoli composto da Messer Pandolfo Collenutio, jurisconsolto in Pesaro.
In Venetia. Con privilegio del sommo Pontifice Paulo.& d Cesarea maestra & de lo Illustrissimo senato Veneto per anni dieci, 1548. Small 8vo, 143 x 100 mms., foliated [iv], 296, woodcut on title-page with female "Sibylla" within oval border, later 18th cneutyr quarter sheepskin, lightly marbled boards, green morocco label on spine; ex- library, with library stamp obscuring part of imprint on title-page, hand-written bookplate on front paste-down end-paper "has library mark of German [illegible] at Bologna." A good copy. The scholar and historian Pandolfo Collenuccio (1444 - 1504) graduated from Padua University in 1465 with a degree in law and and held various political offices; he is credited with obtaining the Lordship of Pesaro Giovanni Sforza , illegitimate son of Costanzo I. Exiled from his home town of Padua thanks to a dispute involving Sforza, he achieved some fame as one of the early Etruscan scholars. Many of his works were published after his death, as is the case with this volume, published first in 1539. The woodcut image of Sibylla on the title-page apears to be that of Sibylla, Queen of Jerusalem (c. 1160 - 1190). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
