Relatione del danno cagionato dal Terremoto, Successo à dì 7. Giugno 1695. Nelle Città di Bagnarea, Orvieto, e Luoghi convicini.

Roma, Giovanni Francesco Buagni, 1695

4° (205x153 mm). [2] ll. Woodcut vignette on title, showing a town. Unbound. A very good copy, leaves rather browned. Provenance: the Roman Dominican convent of Santa Maria sopra Minerva (contemporary inked ownership note on title, ‘Bibliot: Conventui S.ae M.ae Super Minervam’). Very scarce report – not in Baratta - on the 1695 earthquake in Central Italy, one of the strongest events occurred in Orvieto, Bagnoregio and Civita. The damage to buildings, including Orvieto’s cathedral, were severe, but the miracolous intercession of the relics of St. Bonaventure saved the population: the victims were only about thirty. The pamphlet was available for sale – as printed on title – in the bookshops of ‘Francesco Leone Libraro in Piazza Madama e Renato Bono in Piazza Navona’. No copy in OCLC.
