Venezia, Tipografia Fontana: 1851
Binding: Half Calf. Marbled boards
8vo. 23.5 by 15.5 cm. 340 pp. With 3, of the 12 steel engraved plates. Condition: leather rubbed, worn, yet gilt lettering still clear, intact. Title page with light foxing, and scattered light foxing besides. Light dampstain on last few leaves. Generally, text pages are mostly clean, and one might say remarkably given the paper stock that was used. The only significant shortcoming, in our view, is the missing plates, but still a scarce work. Only five copies come up on OCLC First Search -- Bologna, UCLA, Berkeley, LOC, New York Hist. Soc.
