About this Item

N.d. Circa 1690. 12mo. 160 pp. Woodcut ornament on title. (Brunet IV 1390. 12mo. Gamba 2071) Contemporary vellum. Front joint repaired. Slight separation of lower rear joint. Restoration to upper corner of leaf pp 93/4. P. 107 with awkwardly cut margin. Considerable toning especially around text, but overall fine other than issues mentioned. Rosa is best known as a landscape painter but he also in his lifetime has a considerable reputation as a poet. His eventful, picaresque, and now mythologized life centered at various times around Naples, Rome and Florence. As a champion of artistic freedom, Rosa rejected the then prevalent patronage system in the artworld. In the satires Rosa attacked aspects of the music and art scene, and the most famous of the satires, "La Babilonia", took daring swipes at the clergy, leading to its placement on the Vatican's Index of prohibited works.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
