Tractatus Insulari Archipelagi.

Tractatus Insulari Archipelagi. 4 leaves on paper (c19th introduction in Italian to the work of Buondelmonte); 38 leaves on vellum (c15th); nineteenth century tooled leather binding. Rubrication incomplete.

Cristoforo Buondelmonte was from a distinguished Florentine family, who travelled extensively in the Greek archipelago during his life. The volume is dedicated to Cardinal Giardano Orsini, evident from a rubricated acrostic from the beginning of each chapter. There is a copy of Buondelmonte's work on paper, in a less neat hand, at P/20.
