Binding : Attractive and very good full leather binding (hinges fine, overall slightly worn and scuffed) under a removable protective mylar cover . Our binding is decorated by tools associated with a shop once designated the ‘Rospigliosi Bindery’ on account of the work it undertook (directly and on behalf of donors) for Giulio Rospigliosi as Cardinal and as Pope Clement ix (1667–1669). From about 1656, the shop worked continuously for the Biblioteca Vaticana. Recent scholarship has identified its proprietors as the brothers Gregorio (died 1696) and Giovanni Andreoli (died 1699) -- Andreoli brothers.
The winged putti tools are found on other examples from the Vatican Bindery, which was operated by the Andreoli Brothers, a shop formerly called the Rospigliosi Bindery after one of its patrons; see Legatura Romana Barocca (1991) pl. XI.
Content : Very good content (bright, some foxing and staining).
Illustrations : Complete with the 2 frontispiece and the 7 illustrations of the FILOSOFIA DEL VERO CHRISTIANO.
Sotheby's Estimate : (USD 2000 - USD 2500)
The book : Attractive 17th century ROSPIGLIOSI BINDERY WORK with the arms of Machiavelli (left part) and Baccelli (right part), but we haven’t identified the exact provenance.
