Work published in Milano by Publisher and Bookseller Pirotta & c. in 1845.
Very rare booklet as only 125 copies were published and never put for sale ( Edizione di soli centoventicinque esemplari e che non furono messi in commercio), which it means it was published for Loyal customers.
Collation - end leaf,half tile,37 page, end leaves with skull image.
The large folding engraving 62 x 24 cm ,has been lithographed by R.Corbetta after drawing by Giov.Pedraglio ( signed on the lower part).
the booklet looks at , starting with the Local church, the Importance throughout the ages and place of the representation of this subject.
Really interesting reading
Uncut copy, internally pretty fresh and crisp, presenting some spotting and general browning.
