Politics. ZUCCOLO. Discorsi dell'honore della gloria, della riputatione, del buon concetto...
 ZUCCOLO, Lodovico. Discorsi dell'honore, della gloria, della riputatione, del buon concetto, di Lodouico Zuccolo accademico Filopono di Faenza.Venetia, presso Marco Ginami, 1623

Big 8vo, 220x155 mm; full vellum binding, manuscript title on spine. Pp. [44], 255, [1]. Printer's mark. In oval frame the motto: Spes mea in Deo est. Woodcut initial letters and ornaments. Spread browning, but good specimen.

Rare first edition of this work, of which there are two distinct prints that are different for the presence of the dedication to Mr. Gieronimo Pina gentleman of Cataro. Some examples therefore have 3 dedication leaves between the preliminary and the explicit reference to the titlepage, others dont have the dedication and the titlepage. Our specimen is complete with this dedication. Unusual original edition of this work by Zuccolo, a Fainean political writer. "Ouvrage fort rare, important pour l'histoire des moeurs. A la fin de la table se trouvent six lignes en vers slaves". See Choix de Olschki, II.

Bound with: ZUCCOLO, Lodovico. Discorso delle ragioni del numero del verso italiano di Lodouico Zuccolo academico Filopono di Faenza...Venetia, presso Marco Ginami, 1623
