About This Item

Woodcut Medici arms on title. 8 p.l., 68, [4] pp. Large 4to, cont. calf, arms in gilt of Nicolas Joseph Foucault on covers, spine gilt, contrasting morocco lettering piece on spine. Florence: Santi Franci, 1681. First edition of Baldinucci's biographical history of Italian art and architecture from 1260 to 1300. The author's son, Francesco Saverio Baldinucci, edited the remaining five volumes published in the years 1686-1728 and covering the period 1300 to 1670. This is a very handsome copy from the library of Nicolas Joseph Foucault (1643-1721), statesman and archeologist, with his arms in gilt on the covers and his armorial bookplate. Baldinucci's work was based on published sources as well as original research with unpublished manuscripts and documents and is considered by Cicognara to be a worthy successor to Vasari. Fine and crisp copy. ❧ Brunet, I, 622-"Cet ouvrage est difficile à trouver complet.".
