About this Item

Writing here under the pseudonym of Nicacio Sevillano, Campoverde (1658?1737) was otherwise a Jesuit, chair holder of theology in the Universidad de Alcal?, and "Examinador Sinodal" of the archbishopric of Toledo. This folio extra volume offers his important defense of the rights and privileges of the cathedral in Toledo from an attack by the authorities of the cathedral in Seville. Handsomely printed at the Vatican Press in large roman and italic with all initials being large and engraved, it also has engraved head- and tailpieces, also large, that are signed "P. Giffart." This is the second edition, with the first in Latin being very uncommon; the work in Spanish, as published in Madrid in 1726, was titled Defensa christiana, politica y verdadera de la primacia de las Espa?as que goza la Santa Iglesia de Toledo contra un manifiesto que . ha publicado la Santa Iglesia de Sevilla: dividida en tres partes. Following the half-title is a => stunning added engraved title-page by Pietro Marini after the drawing by Pietro Andrea Bucciar di Barberi. The printed title-page is handsomely presented in black and red with an engraved vignette by C. Gregori.
