About this Item

An early Italian language edition of one of the most popular works on chiromancy of the 16th century. Tricasso (1491-c.1550) was a disciple of Barthelemy Cocles. At variance with Cocles on a number of points, he set out in this work to analyze the significance of 78 configurations of hands, as well as to outline the supposed astrological implications. His work is frequently cited by many later writers on the subject. As with other copies cited in OCLC, the date at the conclusion of the authorís preface is misprinted "1635" (it should be "1535," the date of the first Italian edition of this title). Brunet V:945; STC of Italian Books, p. 680. Caillet 10830. Sm. 8vo. 344pp. Illustrated with a large woodcut vignette on title page, verso of title and colophon with devices, and 78 woodcuts of hands keyed to the text. Cont. vellum with manuscript spine lettering. Light browning and soiling, including title page, but overall a very nice copy in a contemporary binding. Bookseller Inventory # 6173
