Considerationi Sopra Tutta La Vita di N.S.  Giesu Christo Del R.P. Bartolomeo RICCI
Roma: Presso Bartolommeo Zanetti 1610 - Roma: Presso Bartolommeo Zanetti, 1610. Second Edition. 8vo (195 x 135mm). [8] 160pp., verso of leaf 160 blank. Engraved title-page depicting the four Evangelist writers and their symbols standing on architectural frame, engraver signed "C.C.F." 160 (numbered 159) full-page engraved scenes and explanatory text with chapter numbers, printed within borders, with printed biblical text references in margins, on each facing page. The scenes are from the Old and New Testament with particular emphasis on the life of Christ. Later calf, marbled edges; only occasional foxing, margins trimmed; calf rubbed and worn with loss. The exceptional series of 160 engravings by an unidentified artist (possibly the same C.C.F.?), accompany the devotional text of the Jesuit priest, Bartolomeo Ricci (1542- 1613). A book of unusual design, the Considerationi is arranged to emphasize the images. Each page opening singularly completes a scene (text and image) of the Christian story ranging from the Creation, to the Annunciation, to the Transfiguration, to work of the disciples, miracles and parables.   Condition Report Externally Spine – fair condition – contemporary binding, wear to edges with loss.
