La Colonna di chiesa santa. Panegirico detto nella solennizata festa di S. Agostino Nella Chiesa de RR Padri di S. Marco, à nome de Signori Legisti delle Scole Palatine…
A good copy of this panegyric given at the Church of San Marco in Milan to mark the feast day of St Augustine in 1660, by the Milanese lawyer Matteo Abbiate Forieri, an annual event on behalf of the lawyers of the city’s Scuole Palatine. Abbiate Forieri identifies Augustine as the African pillar that supports the Church, muses on the history of Italian interactions with Africa from Aeneas onwards, and praises Augustine for acquiring Africa for Christ, while combatting the heresies of the Manicheans and the Pelagians.
Abbiate Forieri was the author of several legal treatises, and was a consultore for the Inquisition in Milan.
Not in OCLC or Library Hub; SBN records four copies, at the Biblioteca statale in Lucca, the Braidense, and the Universities of Turin and Pavia.

CLUSIUS, Charles (de l’Écluse).
Rariorum plantarum historia.
First edition of Clusius’s magnum opus, containing approximately one hundred new species. A valuable collection of careful descriptions of rare plants, the Rariorum plantarum historia gathers accounts from Clusius’s earlier botanical tours of Spain (Rariorum aliquot stirpium per Hispanias observatarum historia, 1576) and Austria and Hungary (Rariorum aliquot stirpium per Pannoniam, Austriam, et vicinas quasdam provincias observatarum historia, 1583) with extensive new material.
Zoologia medicinalis hibernica, or a Treatise of Birds, Beasts, Fishes, Reptiles, or Insects, which are commonly known and propagated in this Kingdom, giving an Account of their medicinal Virtues, and their Names in English, Irish, and Latin, to which is added a short Treatise of the diagnostic and prognostic Parts of Medicine, the former shewing how by the Symptoms you may know a Distemper, the latter giving an Account of the Event thereof, whether it will end in Life or Death.
First edition of a scarce text on the zoology of Ireland, with an index of Irish names. An early work on Irish zoology, the Zoologia was published by John Keogh (junior, 1680/1 – 1754) shortly after his Botanologia universalis Hibernica, or, a general Irish Herbal (1735). Both works promote the medicinal properties of their subjects, with ‘A short Treatise of the diagnostic and prognostic Parts of Medicine’ comprising almost half the present work.
