Rare first extended edition in an attractive copy of this esteemed dictionary of Church latin. It does not however comprise the complete idiom of the Roman Catholic Church; emphasis is on liturgical terms and terms from the vulgate, dogmatics and canon law. It's aim was to educate priests and help them against attacks of heretics. It was written by Domenico Magri in Italian (Notizia de' vocaboli ecclesiastici, 1644) and translated into Latin and augmented by his brother Carlo Magri. It was first published thus in 1677 and appeares in our edition for the first time with the estemeed additions by Stefano Sciugliaga. The pages xviii - xxii contain the auctoris vita a Marco Argolo breviter descripta, a biographical sketch of the author, pp. 611- 630 of the second volume an index of authors, index ordinum regularium, et militantium and an index locorum. The dictionary was held in high esteem and published in some 15 editions up until 1788. There was also a Venice edition from the same year as our copy. Some of the engraved illustrations in the text of both volumes are curious and interesting depicting a.o. a Pope-transporter (Sellare on p. 390 of vol. II); a sandal at the lemma Sandalia where the different sandals are dealt with according to ecclesiastical dignity. Hurter, II, p. 135v; Lexikon für Theologie und Kirche, VI, p. 788. Biographie universelle, 26, p. 153: Ce lexique est fort estime; et l'on y trouve une foule de details curieux qu'on chercherait vainement dans les ouvrages du meme genre. 1 copy in Dutch Central Catalog (NCC); this edition not in OCLC; Small library stamp on first free fly-leaf; covers somewhat wharped.
