Eccitamento Di Un Vero Patriota Sopra L'Ultimo Scritto Delli Fratelli Contarini Qu. Carlo
[Venezia], (Dalle stampe del cittadino Isidoro Borghi a S. Samuel), 1797. Self wrappers. 4 pp. 16mo. An anonymous attack on the brothers Contarini, a powerful Venetian family during the fall of the Venetian empire, by Giuseppe Albertani, a lawyer. Of them he says: "And could you have seen them without horror, without indignation? Where are the laws? Where is the Public Vigilance: Where is the Criminal Justice?.. equally despised in the old, who in the new Government may impose order with impunity; violate the maxims; to attack the Public tranquility?" The Contarini's responded with their own pamphlet the same year "Libertą. Virtł. Eguaglianza. Veritą resa nota alli fratelli Contarini .. ed al pubblico," attributing the first work to Albertini. Rare. None at auction. OCLC locates only two copies: Univ. Conn and BN France. Very good, cropped closely with loss of a few letters at the top of second page, spine split at tail, faint foxing, with the number "3" inked in first page.

 [Justinian I]; [Baptista de Tortis]; [Torti, Battista], [Leaf of Incunabula] from Justinian I. "Codex de Tortis," by Baptista de Tortis in the Late 15th Century
[Justinian I]; [Baptista de Tortis]; [Torti, Battista]
[Leaf of Incunabula] from Justinian I. "Codex de Tortis," by Baptista de Tortis in the Late 15th Century
[Venice], 1496. Removed. 1 leaf. [2 pp]. 11.5 x 17 inches. Leaf removed from an edition of Baptista de Tortis's late 15th century printing of "Codex de Tortis," (Venice: 1496), a set of laws codified by Justinian I. Though the rule of Justinian I (482-565), or Justinian the Great, was marked by a series of territorial gains for the Byzantine Empire, his legacy was sealed by his efforts to codify Roman law. Originally printed between 529 and 533 A.D. this code endured, in part, because of its pliability and its relevance to a population that reached beyond its territorial borders. This leaf Numbered 37*, printed in black & red, and initials in blue supplied by hand on the verso. "The printer, Baptista de Tortis, was one of the first printers to specialize in the jurisprudence. His reputation for accuracy of texts enabled him to dispose of edition after edition of 2000 or more copies, folio size, of his various publications, while many another 15th century printer went into bankruptcy after printing only one or two volumes in editions of 500 copies or less. "Tortis's round, gothic type found such favor with the early Spanish printers that they copied it for several centuries under the name "letra de Tortis." The typographical problem of planning a certain amount of text to correspond exactly with related glosses complete on the same page was successfully handled in this unit." (See Donald Jackson Collection of Original Leaves: Colorado Springs, CO. 1981). Very good, folded, edge wear & tear, light soiling and staining, primarily along margins.
