Auction 355 Old & Rare Books - General History & Topography

GIRAFFI, A. Wonderlijcken Op, ende Ondergang, van Tomaso Aniello, Met de beroerten tot Neapolis. Vertaelt d. I.V. C(asteleyn). Haerlem, V. Casteleyn, 1650. (10), 420 pp. W. engr. ti., and 10 engr. illustr. in text. 12°. Cont. vellum. (Upper inner joint broken and in need of some care, but a very good copy).

In 1647 the people of Naples rose up in a rebellion against the government of the Spanish viceroy in what has come to be known as 'Masaniello's Revolt'. - Casteleyn published a 2nd ed. of this work in 1652 (i.a. Waller 616) with a sequel, but this Haarlem edition of 1650 is exceptionally rare (not in Waller, Muller, De Vries, Scheepers). There exists another - also very scarce - Amsterdam edition of 1650, published by Van Ravesteyn, but this came without illustrations.
