Appresso Gli Heredi di Simon Galignani, Venetia 1591 - WIth contemporary hand-coloring of all illustrations, including the title page, and decorative devices, of a book seldom found with color. 4to. 30 by 20.5 cm. [6], 95 pp. Each of the 23 chapters features a hand-colored illustration of the particular funeral rite. These measure 9 by 15 cm, oblong. Plus coloring of the rinceaux bands at the chapter heads, the letter devices at the beginning of chapter texts, and foot decorations at the close of the chapters, plus a more elaborate statuary decoration at the close of the book. Besides the beauty of the hand-coloring, the color greatly aids in the delineation of detailing. Brunet IV 820. Title page heavily soiled. Dampstaining to closing pages. Scattered soiling in between. Images, though, are consistently bright and fresh. Vellum, which is near contemporary, has band of soiling running on both front and back. Some surface abrasion to vellum, and other wear.
