De le lettere di tredici huomini illustri libri tredici.
Valerio Dorico, Rome 1554 - Small octavo, italic letter, guide-letters for initials; a very attractive copy in olive morocco gilt, gilt edges, silk tie. Fine early anthology of letters by famous men, including Giovio, Bernardo Tasso, Annibal Caro and others. The delightful binding is attributed in an old owner's note to Padeloup. There are a few early owner's notes in pen, some correcting typographical errors including a footnote where "dodeci" is changed to "tredici" in the title of the work, indicating that it grew in scope while in the press.The nephew of Jacopo Sadoleto, the celebrated humanist scholar and bishop of Carpentras, in 1535 Paolo was named his coadjutor to the bishopric with right of succession, which he succeeded to in 1547.From the Ingleton collection with his bookplate and shelfmark.
