Author: MM. Artaria et Compagnie
Publisher: Vienne, Imprimerie de Joseph noble de Schmidbauer
Condition: Very Good
An early 19th century first edition of the Detailed Catalog of the Precious Collection of Prints, Collections, Cabinets, Galleries and Books on the Arts, of the late Mr. Jean-Pierre Cerroni, scheduled for October 1828.
This copy has been printed with outlandishly large margins, with the right-side margins being roughly 9cm long, and the lower margins being 7cm. Comparable copies of this edition do not seem to have the same margins, and Worldcat indicates institution-held copies to be in octavo format at roughly 20cm, whereas this copy is significantly larger at 25cm. Whether this copy was produced in such a way for the owner to leave annotations in the margins, or some other reason, is left up to speculation.
Worldcat records 6 existing copies of this edition in libraries.
One volume in quarto, XVI+379 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in very good shape, with some rubbing and staining to the binding. There is very little foxing or staining throughout, slightly heavier to several pages.
