Apuliae Terraemotus deploratio.

Rome, Giacomo Mascardi, 1632

4° (202x149 mm). 7, [1] pp. One woodcut opening initial, tailpiece on recto of the last leaf. Unbound. An excellent copy, slightly browned, a few old folds. Very scarce narrative - only one copy recorded in OCLC - of the disastrous earthquake that stroke the area of Gargano in Apulia, on 30 July 1627. The horribilis terraemotus described by the abbot Giacchetti was followed by a tsunami, probably the largest that ever occurred in the Adriatic Sea.
