Condition Report

First edition dedicated to Cosimo III. The work includes a historical part and one with the description of the procession of 1711. There are numerous valuable information about the history of art. In addition, among the large plates, with a remarkable workmanship and suggestion, we recall the several folded ones illustrating the procession: in particular, the last two depict the procession and with the imposing view of the square of the Real Palazzo de 'Pitti when the sacred image was laid.
