With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

[Framed Print] Costumi Religiosi e Militari della Corte Pontificia, Marroni, Salvatore
1 Marroni, Salvatore [Framed Print] Costumi Religiosi e Militari della Corte Pontificia
Roma l'Editore Tommaso Cuccioni First Blindstamped Cloth. Very Good Plus 
Framed and matted print, and quite possibly also an uncut version of hand-colored costume panels for the souvenir leporello of the same title (with 18 out of the usual leporello count of 30 or so costume portraits). N.d., circa 1840. The exposed print is 29 by 40.5 cm, and with the matting and frame, 59 by 62.5 cm. These images of Vatican dress, both which cover both ecclessiastic and military costume. While on the one hand this appears to be the uncut version, since there are cursive captions above and below the ruled portraits, we have to think this was sold to be framed and hung as well. We believe that this particular print format is in any case scarce, as we have never encountered it as such before, while we do come across the leporello, and other book formats with these illustrations, with some regularity. Attractively framed and matted. Some light soiling of the print beneath the glass.
