OSIO Teodato – L’armonia del nudo parlare overo la musica ragione della voce continua nella quale a forza di aritmetiche et di musiche speculationi si pongono alla prova le regole sino al presente stabilite da gli osservatori del numero della prosa et del verso (L’armonia del nudo parlare con ragione di numeri pitagorici discoperta da Teodato Osio all’Ecc.mo Sr. Don Fran.co di Melo) – No date (but 1637 from dedication). In Milano per Carlo Ferrandi. Coeval soft cardboard with titles on a label applied to the spine; sedicesimo, 16 cm; pp. (16) 35 (1) 191; eyelet restored without loss of text, overall excellent copy. Title of eyelet slightly different from that of the title page; full page engraved title page; dedicatory (which shows the year of printing) to Count Don Francesco Braganza; initials, friezes and endings in woodcut; 11 tipped plates folded several times; editorial glosses. First edition, uncommon and of a certain rarity. Osio was probably the first to integrate the aesthetic charge of music into an aesthetic relationship with poetry and human history in general, in a sort of harmonic-rhetorical connection and custom.
