Romanus Libanus, sive de nivibus Exquilinis oratio, habita in Ecclesia S. Mariae in Campitello. A Io. Petro Cella Florentino, Congr. B. Mariae ad Nives sodali. Ad Eminentiss. ac Reverendiss. Principem Flavium Chisium S.R.E. Card. Ampliss.
Ex Typographia Francisci Monetae ., Romae [Rome] 1659 - 8vo., pp. 9 [1]. Engraved title-page. Woodcut head-piece and initial. Side- and lower margins of title-page extended at an early date, very good, bound in modern marbled wrappers, old (18th-cent.?) stamp. Titled ?the Roman is Lebanese?, this oration is on the Miracle of the Snow, the mid-fourth-century miracle which saw snow fall one August night in Rome, on the site of the future Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. The theme of the author?s talk is how, with this miracle, Lebanese weather came to the city. The encouragement to imaginative displacement between the Italian city and the Middle East is interesting. The oration was given at Rome?s church of Santa Maria in Campitelli. IT\ICCU\RMLE\058570 (one copy). The same copy (at Biblioteca Casanatense) on OCLC (01/18). [Attributes: Soft Cover]
