Condition Report

First edition. The catalogue of the prestigious library of Cardinal Joseph Imperiali was drafted by Fontaniniat the time his librarian: over twenty thousand works are described in the first part ordered by author, in the second by topic. Taylor: ?The care shown in describing and classifying the books makes the Imperiali catalogue and its subject-index a good source of information about seventeenth-century books.? Pollard & Ehrman: ?the Imperiali catalogue? includes under each authorĀ?s name all his contributions to the periodicals and miscellanies in the library as well as his separately published books. For this reason it was recognised as a useful work of reference on its own.? La biblioteca fu dispersa alla fine del Settecento.
