About This Item

FIRST EDITION. 4to, pp. xxxxiv, 466, [16] index and errata, [1] colophon, [1] blank; in contemporary vellum, title in ink on spine; a very good copy.

Rare first edition of this unusual work on Christian marriage by the prolific Udinese writer Francesco Beretta (1678-1768).

Beretta discusses the aims of marriage, before examining its social effects and benefits, and describing the various types of marriage, as well as the different motives and requirements of those who enter into it. He goes on to examine the importance of wealth, beauty, and good health, before discussing the role of obedience in marriage, inward and outward modesty, clothing and ornament, conversation, dining, theatre ("dangerous to modesty"), love, piety, the good use of time, the period between betrothal and marriage, and the marriage ceremony itself.

The author wrote on a number of subjects, including the history of Friuli, theological and biblical exegesis, and philosophy.
