Vol 1 have 525, vol 2 have 465 pages; vol 3 have 446. Size is 36x21x5 cm.
Volumes 2,3 are printed in 1691 and vol. 1 in 1692. I think the year on Volume 3 is wrong because the last one print was in 1691. Condition is very good, the covers are from vellum, grate condition. This volumes are very rare to found it.
Ascanio Tamburini was born in Marradi in 1580 and died in the Badia di S. Bartolomeo a Ripoli in 1666. As is known here in the town, we named it the road that goes from the Teatro degli Animosi to Palazzo Torriani. He was a cultivated friar, theologian and jurist twice elected General of the Vallombrosan Order, a maximum charge for those religious. He wrote the De jure et privilegis Abbatum Prelatorum, which means “Regarding the right and the prerogatives of the abbots and prelates”, a collection of laws for use by the friars.
He wrote in Latin and did not address the public but the confreres and wanted his books to be kept in the libraries of the convents and the prescribed laws complied with. In short, he was one who dictated the Rule and owed him obedience.
