Loggie de Rafaele nel Vaticano (3 volumes in one), together with Rossi's Ager Puteolanus (for a total of four volume in one)
Late 1600s; 1652 - A total of 64 leaves with plates depicint the Loggie designed by Raphael and then Rossi's (Roccio's) work. The works herein, designated by the dedicatee, are "D Nicolao Simonellio Picturae omniumq bonarum Artium Cultori eximio", with a total of 15 plates, including the title page; "Eminentissimo AC Reverendissimo Principi Camillo Maximo S.R.E. Cardinali Amplissimo Bonarum Artium omniumq Nobilium Disciplinarum Patrono ac Macenati Meritissimo", 43 scenes on 21 leaves, including title page; Serenissimo Principi Leopoldo Medici", 15 leaves including title; the Ager Puteolanus, 13 leaves, including a full page map. The oblong volume measures 16 by 11 inches, 41 by 28 cm. The calf of the boards has some cracks, scuffs, chips and edge losses, and while not entirely dessicated, it is not fresh. The ornamented spine is drier and suffers losses at the tips. The gutters have some minor starting in the upper reaches and the cords are revealed. Nonetheless the full calf binding, even in its compromised state, does complement the material well and is worth preserving. The free endpapers have crunch creases, both in the front and rear. Otherwise, the binding is tight internally, and the plate leaves, while they have some scattered minor soilage, are generally bright, crisp, clean and qualify this as a superior example of the works contained herein.
