DE FERRARIS Gio. Pietro. Practica Aurea Io. Petri De Ferrariis papiensis I.C. eximii. Venice, Francesco Ziletti, 1575 (wrong date on the title page, see typographic mark on the last page). Famous and celebrated illustrated legal work known as "Practica Papiensis" by the great scholar of notary law from Pavia Gio. Pietro De Ferrari. A work of absolute worship for notaries and prosecutors, hindered by the Church. This text is also appreciable for the particular judgments, not always lenient, on the citizens of Pavia, on the institutions and on the decay of the city's customs in the first half of the fifteenth century. Beautiful antique parchment binding. Title page with incorrect date. Large and elaborate typographic brand engraved on the title page and repeated on the last page. A large engraving depicting the Arbor Consanguinitatis. Size: 32x23 cm, sheets: 33 nn. - 1 c.b. - 259 - 1 nn. An excellent copy with wide margins.
