Full Description

4to. xi + (1) + 232pp. Recent paper wrappers, inner hinge strengthened. Occasional light spotting, first gathering becoming loose. Contemporary ink notes on p.25.

A scholarly catalogue of the inscriptions in the Albani collection of classical antiquities, intended to supplement Morcelli’s guide book published earlier in the same year. It should be noted that it includes items from the Palazzo Albani in the centre of Rome which are outside Morcelli’s terms of reference, and that it also publishes inscriptions and inscribed monuments in non-Albani hands where these are relevant. Cicognara 3777.
