ALBERTOLLI, Giocondo (1742--1839)
[Alcune decorazioni. c. 1796?]
Alcune decorazioni di nobili sale ed altri ornamenti di Giocondo Albertolli ... incisi da Giacomo Mercoli e da Andrea de Bernardis
Milano 1787 [i.e. 1796 or later?].
[2] p., engr. t.-pl., engr. dedic., XXIII pl. ; 55.4 cm. (1º)

This copy of Albertolli's second collection of ornament has the additional pl. XXIII not found in the other Soane copy (q.v.), and the letterpress preface reset with type using a "short" rather than a "long" form of 's'. It probably represents a later issue, printed on or after the publication of Albertolli's third collection, Miscellanea per i giovani studiosi del disegno, 1796 (q.v.) with which it is frequently bound, probably as sold. BAL, Early printed books, no. 61; Berlin Kat. 596.

Copy Notes Bound (3) and probably sold with a later issue of Albertolli's Ornamenti diversi (q.v.) to accompany his Miscellanea per i giovani studiosi del disegno, 1796.

Binding Later C19th half calf, blind-tooled borders, gilt double-rule and blind roll-tooled spine with dark blue morocco spine-label; possibly replacing earlier binding supplied or repaired for 9s. (see payment to Josiah Taylor on 12 June 1804, Priv. Corr. XVI.E.1).

Reference Number 1584
