Tractatus de Fideiussoribus: In Quo Tota Fideiussionum, Satisdationum
1620. Mauro, Pirro [16th/17th c.]. Tractatus de Fideiussoribus: In Quo Tota Fideiussionum, Satisdationum, & Cautionum Materia Latissime Explicatur. Omnibus tam in Scholis, Quam in Foro Versantibus Valde Utilis, & Necessarius. Opus Novum, Et Satis Dilucidatum, Discussum, Declaratum, Ornatumque. Cum Suis Argumentis, Numeris, Summariis, Ac Indice Copioso, & Locupleti. Quibus Addita Fuit Eiusdem Authoris, Quaedam Brevis Explicatio ad Materias de Solutionibus, Oblationibus, & Retentionibus Utilas, & Notatu Digna, & Scitu Necessaria. Venice: Ex Typographica Officina Io. Baptistae Ciotti, 1620. 645 (i.e., 637), 139, [23] pp. Main text in parallel columns. De Solutionibus has separate title page and pagination. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6"). Later marbled boards, hand-lettered title label to spine, speckled edges, endpapers renewed. Light rubbing to extremities, corners bumped, backstrip just starting to detach near head, partial crack between front free endpaper and title page. Large woodcut printer device to title page, woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Later owner bookplate to front pastedown, early underlining in a few places, interior otherwise clean. A nice copy of a scarce title. * First edition. Mauro's treatise discusses obligations, suretyship and guaranty in Roman law. Although little is know about its reception history, it appears to have enjoyed a moderate degree of success; another Venetian edition was published in 1622. Publications in Frankfurt and Nuremberg followed in 1631 and 1640. Not in Roberts or the British Museum Catalogue.
