About This Item

BASILEAE: APUD NIC. EPISCOPIUM IUN., 1558. In 16. Dim. 17x12 cm. Pp. 32 (n.n.)+350+2 (n.n.). Rara edizione del 1558 di quest'opera scritta da Cristophe Longueil (1488-1522) umanista francescano. Nel 1517 Longueil strinse amicizia con Pietro Bembo e Jacopo Sadoleto ma questo non impedì che nei suoi confronti si scatenasse una forte campagna diffamatoria tanto che fu costretto a trafserirsi a Padova dove si spense. Ammiratore incondizionato di Cicerone, fu un grande propagandista del ciceronismo prima in Francia, poi a Roma. Questo suo epistolario non è una mera imitazione della produzione ciceroniana, ma denota una ricerca stilistica ed un'eleganza espositiva di rara freschezza e vivacità. Nella prima parte la sua vita, poi l'epistolario. Numerose note manoscritte all'interno. Marca editoriale all'ultima carta. Titolo manoscritto al taglio inferiore. Opera collazionata e risultata completa. Legatura in pergamena. Non comune. Copertina in piena pergamena con reintegrazione al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con usure e segni di tarlo ai margini, piatti e dorso. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in ottime condizioni con rare fioriture. Segno di tarlo al margine destro fino a pag. 12 e da pag. 347 sino alla fine senza perdita di testo; fino a pag. 10 (n.n.) con perdita di qualche lettera; all'ultima carta perdita di parte incisa. Lieve gora d'umidità al margine superiore da pag. 337 sino alla fine. Scarce edition of 1558 of this work written by Cristophe Longueil (1488-1522) franciscan humanist.<BR>Longueil in 1517 became friend with Pietro Bembo and Jacopo Sadoleto but he was forced anyway to move in che Padoa where he died. Enthusiastic of Cicero, was a great propagandist of Ciceronism in france then a Rome. This epistolarium is not a simple imitation of the ciceronian production, but denotates a stylistic research and an expositive elegance of rare freshness. In the first part his life, then his work. Different manuscripted notes inside. Editorial mark in the last page. Manuscripted title in the lower external edge of pages. Collationed work. Parchment cover. Not common work.
