Condition Report

Beautifully illustrated work with lithographed plates from Colombo Coen on designs of Rieger, Kirchmayr, Gatteri and Marangoni: perspective views of Trieste in different historical periods, picturesque views of the city and its surroundings, coins and costumes. The edition was curated by Francesco Cameroni who took advantage of the manuscripts preserved in the archive of Trieste: in addition to the story of Vincenzo Scussa, which reaches up to 1695, are published in the annals of Pietro Kandler, from 1695 to 1848. They collected a lot of news involving civil and political history, myths and religion, art, architecture, fortifications, coinage, the corographic characteristics of the territory.
