8vo (187 x 128mm). [iv] 160pp., verso of leaf 160 blank. Signatures: [ii], A (7), B-V (8). Engraved title-page depicting the four Evangelist writers and their symbols standing on architectural frame, engraver signed "C.C.F." Dedicated to Giuseppe Ambrosi. 158 (numbered 159) full-page engraved scenes and explanatory text with chapter numbers, printed within borders, with printed biblical text references in margins, on each facing page. The scenes are from the Old and New Testament with particular emphasis on the life of Christ. Later calf, marbled edges; (imperfect first quire wanting one page at 1 or 8; p.7 with paper repair slightly affecting imagery, only occasional foxing, margins trimmed; calf slightly rubbed). This book in Florence in 1838, by rear inscription pasted in perhaps from original binding. First Edition. The exceptional series of 158 engravings by an unidentified artist (possibly the same C.C.F.?), accompany the devotional text of the Jesuit priest, Bartolomeo Ricci (1542- 1613), yet the plentiful, fresh engravings stand alone as beautiful works of Christian art. The engravings also appeared in Ricci’s Vita D. N. Iesu Christi published in Rome the same year. In 1609, the Italian commentary on the Gospels appeared in another Rome edition for that title. A book of unusual design, the Considerationi is arranged to emphasize the images. Each page opening singularly completes a scene (text and image) of the Christian story ranging from the Creation, to the Annunciation, to the Transfiguration, to work of the disciples, miracles and parables. Very Rare. Worldcat locates this one copy in Boston College Library, one copy in Thomas Fisher Library, Toronto, and 3 copies in the UK; far more common is the 1610 edition. Brunet IV, 1277; Graesse VI, 109. N° de ref. de la librería D4266
