Three items seemingly of interest only to Bolognese bibliophiles or to students of early 19th century Latinity, but it is proper to note that the second of them, a pamphlet publishing the Latin inscriptions put up on churches and public buildings one day in July 1815 as part of ceremonies to mark the papal recovery of the city, comes within the customary classification of festival literature.
