Petronio, Riccardo. Invitto a' religiosi contro dell'armi Ottomane. Ad' istanza di Gioseppe Madi detto il Musico Toscano.

Venice & Bassano, Giovanni Antonio Remondini, [ca. 1715].

8vo. 8 pp. With woodcut device on title page. Wrappers.


An appeal, written in verse, to all religious orders and Christian laymen to take arms against the Ottomans. Apparently an early product of the Turkish-Venetian War of 1714-18, in which the new Grand Vizier Silahdar Damat Ali Pasha re-conquered Morea (the Peloponnesus) from the Venetians, who had held the peninsula since 1699. A different version (kept at the Biblioteca Civica Bertoliana in Vicenza), published by Giovanni Berno "in Venetia, Bassano, & in Verona", is dated 1715; this date of publication is also supported by the mention of Pope Clement XI (1700-21). However, the Marciana in Venice keeps an earlier publication of the same work produced for the Venetian Alessandro Cortesi, bearing the date 1663. Yet another, undated version in the Biblioteca Universitaria di Padova bears the imprint "In Venezia, per Domenico Lovisa à Rialto". No other copy with Remondini's imprint is known.

Some browning and waterstaining; old pagination in manuscript and stamped (apparently removed from an old collection).
