LIMITED EDITION, of 75 copies only, title and preface in English and 216pp of Italian text, part uncut, in original marbled wrappers, 4to, [London}, Chiswick Press, 1876. (2).Estimate £ 600-800Provenance: Cesarini's niece by legacy; from her husband to Horatio Walpole, Earl of Orford by purchase, then by descent in the family until 1998. **** These accounts differ from the other printed sources which would discount the possibility of the compiler transcribing from any other printed text. The provenance as detailed indicates a connection to Cesarini whose manuscripts and papers were aquired by the Earl of Orford. In fact the obvious closeness of the compiler to Henry, shown by the detail in the accounts, gives this collection (with its Provenance) both substance and importance.
