About this Item

[with the same author's] [Corollarium poeticum]. [Florence: Pietro Nesti, 1636]. 118, [2] pp. (probably lacking first two preliminary leaves). First edition of Gaddi's Adlocutiones and the only edition of his Corollarium. Jacopo Gaddi (d. 1668) published these speeches, poems, and epitaphs praising European men of letters within years of founding the Accademia degli Svogliati, an international circle of living literati (including John Milton) who met at his home in Florence to discuss poetry and philosophy. His accolades, in Latin and Italian, go mostly to Italians, including Pietro Bembo, Pope Pius II, Ludovico Ariosto, Torquato Tasso, Vicentine nobleman Giangiorgio Trissino, and Dante, among other late greats. The Corollarium is only found bound with the Adlocutiones, as here; however the latter was also published separately the same year. Both were printed by Pietro Nesti at Florence using roman and italic type with woodcut initials, ornaments, head- and tailpieces. This volume concludes with the original final blank, lacking in many copies, although the Corollarium seems to lack a preliminary signature of two leaves (probably a blank and a sectional title leaf). Provenance: Front fly-leaf and title-page with early owner's inscription of Oliver Pagn[.]; fly-leaf verso with owner's inscription dated 1650 of Jo[h]annes Baptista Adimari (related, perhaps, to Alessandro Adimari, a member of Gaddi's Accademia who died in 1649?); and front fly-leaf with later owner's inscription of Philadelphian Henry John Gibbons ("Rittenhouse Square West"). 4to (21.2 cm, 8.34"). [2] ff., 187, [1] pp. Contemporary flexible vellum with title inked to spine, pierced at the edges for four ties, now wanting; discreet repairs with tissue to headcap, spine, one hinge, and front cover edge. Title-page and following leaf repaired in two places, and following 30 pp. repaired in outer margin; first two leaves of second book wanting, as above. Foxing and occasional other staining throughout, the occasional tear, one leaf holed touching text but not spoiling reading, rear free endpaper torn away. Doodlings on front pastedown and fly-leaf; brief index to the first part written by an early hand on final recto and rear pastedown; later pencil markings. => A proud witness to the interests of (Italian) academia.
