[drop-title] Proemio di frate Hieromymo da Ferrara dellordine de p[re]dicatori nella expositio[n]e del psalmo lxxviiii. Tradocto in lingua fiorentina da uno suo familiare.
[colophon: Firenze: apresso a sancta Maria maggiore {i.e. Lorenzo Morgiani and Johannes Petri} Small 4to (21.5 cm; 8.5"). [8] ff.. 8 June 1496] First Italian translation of Savonarola's Expositio in Psalmum LXXIX "Qui regis Israel" (Florence: Francesco Bonaccorsi, for Piero Pacini, 28 Apr. 1496). The study is of St. Ambrose's rendering of that psalm into a hymn on the Virgin Birth, and this translation appeared only six weeks after that Latin-language edition. Written and published during Savonarola's reign over Florence, it is not one of his writings banned by the Index Librorum Prohibitorum; it represents Savonarola at a peak of his worldly and rhetorical powers, and it was several times reprinted. This book is "around" in libraries; ISTC locates 12 U.S. copies. => But on the market, it is a different story! 20th-century grey boards, lightly discolored, with caramel-color leather label on front one. Text very clean.
