Manzoni was the grandson of progressive jurist Cesare Beccaria, the celebrated author of Dei delitti e delle pene. Educated in a liberal and laic milieu fostered by French Enlightenment thought, in he married Henriette Blondel , the daughter of a Genevan banker who was originally a Calvinist. Soon after the marriage, she converted to Roman Catholicism, and her conversion was favoured and prepared by the Jansenist priest from Genoa Eustachio Degola Manzoni was deeply struck by Henriette's choice, and his spiritual crisis was accelerated by the reading of Gospels, Augustine, and numerous other religious books, as well as the frequent discussions with father Degola.
Two years later, in , here discovered and confirmed his Catholic faith, becoming one of the most important representatives of Italian Catholic liberalism. The conversion also marked the beginning of a new phase in Manzoni's literary production, of which the Inni Sacri offers especially striking evidence, revealing his road to spiritual redemption as well as the depth of his religious beliefs, permeated by notions of charity and human piety. Originally conceived as a cycle of twelve hymns celebrating the chief feasts of the Catholic liturgical year, only five hymns were actually composed by Manzoni: La Resurrezione, Il nome di Maria, Il Natale, La Passione and the famous and highly appreciated La Pentecoste.

First edition, dedicated to his childhood friend Costantino Naranzi, of this collection of early poems by the outstanding Italian writer Ugo Foscolo.
Foscolo had composed these poems during his adolescence and copied them into a notebook which was discovered among his papers and manuscripts after his death. The collection first appeared in , issued by the press established by Giuseppe Ruggia in the Swiss town of Lugano.
Ruggia was a highly interesting protagonist of Italian political diasporas who, like Foscolo, had chosen the path of exile, owing to his radical beliefs and his active role in the Risorgimento. Foscolo's youthful poems are still deeply imbued with a rather unoriginal Arcadian style, as their vocabulary, syntax, and metrical structure reveal, far from the spirit of romanticism characteristic of his later production. Nevertheless, some verses do contain the first sparks of his future, and innovative poetics. Excellent copy, minor wear to the foot of the spine.
Front wrapper slightly foxed. Copy no. Provenance: the Italian art historian Bruno Molajoli , one of the subscribers of this publication.

Originally published in Italy, in Italian. Pages are clean and tight; this is a NEW book. Often described as 'the most French of the Italian painters', Mario Cavaglieri was born in Rovigo, Italy in of a wealthy Jewish family.
He trained as a painter and by the age of 20 was already holding exhibitions of his work. In he met Giulietta who was to be his model, his inspiration and ten years later, his wife. Cavaglieri's painting is characterized by bold brush strokes and a firm skill with line and design. Better known in Italy and the United States, the works of Cavaglieri have nevertheless been exhibited in France on several occasions Mario Cavaglieri was initially influenced by the Post-Impressionism of Eduoard Vuillard, the bold colorism and rapid brushstrokes of the Fauves, particularly Henri Matisse, and the Secession style of Gustav Klimt.
