Niccola Valletta - Cicalata sul Fascino volgarmente detto Jettatura - 1814

VALLETTA Niccola. Cicalata sul Fascino volgarmente detto Jettatura. Napoli Stamperia della Società Tipografica 1814. Famous and sought-after work on the evil eye of the famous Neapolitan Illuminist, one of the most cultured characters of Naples in the 18th century. Erudite dissertation on bad luck in all its forms and aspects that leaves the doubt if the author really believed in the evil eye. Examination of the phenomenon both in terms of magic and arcane and from the rational point of view. It’s the progenitor of studies on superstition, a trend that until the 19th century flourished around the belief in the evil eye. Two parts in one volume. Beautiful half leather binding. Gold title and tooling on the spine. Size: 20x13 cm, pp. VIII, 96, 76. In very good condition.
