Catalogue Note

first edition of Calderini’s response to Botero’s Della ragion di stato of 1589. In it Calderini, a native of Ravenna and a Canon Regular, promises a further two volumes of discorsi if this first is well-received; although they never materialised, the present volume was reprinted a few times with minor additions. This is one of two issues (the other with different pagination and a variant title), and the rarer of the two.
