Description: Fête.- Patin (Charles) Le Pompose Feste di Vicenza, fatte nel mese di Giugno, del 1680, title with woodcut device, 2 engraved folding plates depicting the festival carriage and jousting, folding engraved plate of the 'Ruota', 18 engraved illustrations of medals in 3 areas within text, 2 engraved head-pieces, occasional finger-marking, a few small stains, recent binding using old vellum, spotted, 4to (213 x 145mm.), Padua, Gio: Battista Pasquati, 1680. ⁂ A very good copy with wide margins of this rare account of the first festival of Corpus Christi held in Venice. The spectacle included a jousting tournament, horse racing, banquets, balls and a religious procession. A large 'Ruota' was constructed for the event dedicated to the devotion of the Holy Cross. Charles Patin was a renowned physician, antiquarian scholar and numismatist, whose personal collection of medals reportedly rivalled that of the Cabinet du Roi. Despite the pagination of 95-113 this is a complete and separate publication., with signatures A-C4. The last copy we can trace at auction was that of Paul and Marianne Gourary in 2009. Literature: Berlin Kat. 3051; Lipperheide 2792; Ruggieri 821.
