Examen libri pontificalis, sive vitarum romanorum pontificum; quae sub nomine Anastasii bibliothecarii circumferuntur
Romae: Joannis Jacobi Komarek 4to. [8] ff., 120, 119, [1] pp.. 1688 [also bound in, the same author's] Parergon ad examen libri pontificalis,sive, epistola Pii II. ad Carolum VII. regem Franciae ab haereticis deprauata, & à Launoiana calumnia vindicata.... Romae: Joannis Jacobi Komarek, 1688. 4to. 39 pp. Giovanni Ciampini (1633–98) studied law and was subsequently appointed "Magister" at the Apostolic Chancery, thus providing him with a secure job (i.e., sinecure) and allowing him to devote himself to scholarship, as for example, here in his studies of papal biographies and the letters from Pius II to Charles II of France. Both works are printed in roman type with large woodcut initials featuring cherubs and each has its title-page printed in black and red. The Examen is divided into two parts, each with its own collation and pagination, with the second part being "Sanctae romanae ecclesiae bibliothecariorum catalogus, iuxta chronologicum ordinem. . . ." Evidence of readership: In the first part of the Examen an early reader has underlined in sepia ink passages or phrases s/he found significant but added no marginalia. Contemporary vellum. Bookplate removed from front pastedown. Very good copies of both titles. Evidence of readership as above.
