[xiv] + 172 pp. In Italian. Very scarce octavo in 3/4 leather. The first section of the book, up to page155, is Denis the Carthusian (Denis le Chartreux) treatise on the Christian life in the church. The second is the discourse on "the advantage of psalmody" or "De psalmodii bono" which had for many years been attributed, as here, to Saint Nicetius of Trier (513-566) , but which has lately been reattributed to Saint Nicetas of Remesiana (335-414). There are very few recorded copies of this book -- Worldcat has only 2, one in California, one in Lyons (OCLC58887969) and there are no sales or auction records for the book, at all. It is in fairly good antiquarian condition. The leather corners, especially at the top front, are quite worn, brown leather spine cover is chipped and worn with some sort of paper spine label at the top, spine head very chipped. Attractive printed paper covered boards with normal scuffing and wear. All edges with a multi-colored spatter decoration. Interior end papers have an old owner inscript dated 1892 and some pencil notations (look bibliographic but we can't make them out) , first free endpaper has a small hole at the top corner. Text is clean and nice, a few small worm holes in the margins, otherwise unmarked and strong. Attractive title page with Pagliarini's mark and one nice engraved head piece. A good copy of this extremely scarce little work. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 186 pages
