Condition Report

This is one of the best examples of Venetian Rococo chalcography, a work entirely engraved with each frame different from the other. It contains compositions by various authors like Daniele Florio, Cesare Alpago, Alvise Mocenigo, Antonio Bartolini Cavaliere di Malta. Wonderful edition engraved by Giuseppe Camerata and Felicita Sartori on drawings by Giambattista Piazzetta, the artist who made famous the "Tasso del Piazzetta" published by Albrizzi himself. Each printed page is enclosed by a wonderful large engraved frame, with symbolic figures of various kinds, ladies, angels and cherubs, vases, flowers, fruit, scrolls. One of the most beautiful and rare illustrated Venetian book of the eighteenth century.
