Very rare collection of sermons by the Capuchin friar Bellintani (1535–1611), illustrated with attractive woodcuts. 

Delivered in Milan cathedral, the four sermons take as their subjects the resurrection of Christ, his subsequent appearances, the Annunciation of the Virgin, and the temptation of Christ, the first three each being illustrated with an appropriate woodcut.  The Quattro prediche forms the second part of Delli dolori di Christo sig. nostro prediche otto … tutte predicate nel duomo di Milano l’anno 1597, the other part of which was published at Bergamo by Comino Ventura. 

Bellintani was much admired as a preacher and teacher, not least by Carlo Borromeo, for whom he wrote his popular and much reprinted Prattica dell’oration mentale.
