About this Item

The alliance of Louis XII, Pope Julius II, Maximilian I, and Ferdinand the Catholic in war against the Venetians was formalized in 1508, and history has given it the name of The League of Cambrai; it came to an end in 1529 with the signing of the peace of Cambrai. The neo?Latin language work offered here is a history of the origins and progress of the war as seen by a Venetian whose observations and comparisons are remarkably wide-ranging ? as evidenced by his including a passage on leaf Q8 verso concerning => battles that the Spaniards were waging on the Island of Hispaniola and elsewhere in the Indies of America. This volume, curiously, does not sport any of the expectable types of title-page that were common by its time. Instead, it simply reads: Andreae / Mocenici / P.V.D. / Bellvm / Came / racense. This bare title-page is printed in roman type, while all else is printed in a very bright, crisp italic. Several woodcut cribl? initials are used in text. Provenance: Charles Spencer, Third Earl of Sunderland, lot 8534 in the Sunderland Library sale (1882); later part of the Theological Institute of Connecticut Library. Evidence of Readership: Several notes and marked passages, in ink. Small 8vo (15.3 cm; 6"). [188] ff. Not in Harrisse, Bibliotheca Americana Vetustissima; Alden & Landis, European Americana, 525/11; Adams M1518. 18th-century mottled English calf, raised bands and modest gilt tooling, all edges speckled red; hinges (inside) partially open with spine pulled at top and some leather lost at cover corners; holding. Marked as above, some bug-spotting on title-page; two pinhole wormholes in binding extending into lower margins of early signatures; limited waterstaining, typically marginal, and a few other pages with stains or soilings. Ex-library as above: paper shelving label on spine, inking and pencilling on endpapers, embossed institutional stamps on six leaves. => A good and serviceable copy with a happy provenance.
