Condition Report

Rare, important and correct edition, extensively derived from that of Giovanni Giacomo Besozzo of 1694 but increased. It describes the objects of art, rites, relics and the history of archbishops, saints, and so on. of the Ambrosian diocese. A specimen with a large plan of the folded Duomo that often misses. The name of the Author comes from notice to reader a c. [Ast] 4r.
