Catalogo Di Una Scelta E Copiosa Collezione Di Libri Greci, Latini, Italiani, Francesi Inglesi, Spagnoli, Tedeschi &c.

Florence, G.M. II Pagani 1806.

8vo (176 x 118 mm.). [iv], 210p. Woodcut Pagani cipher on the title.

Old blue wrappers.

Second Copy Located of this fixed-price stock catalog offering over 12,000 volumes — from the 1475 Confessional of St. Anthony, and an illuminated Hardouin Hours on vellum to the 1804 Treatise on Painting by da Vinci. The books were available for cash (tired bills not accepted!) from 9 April 1806 at Pagani’s two warehouses (at the Palazzo Altoviti and near the Complesso di San Firenze). BOOKS ON THE INDEX WERE SOLD ONLY TO THOSE WITH THE OFFICIAL LICENSE TO READ THEM. Editions marked with an asterisk are cited by the Accademia della Crusca and may come from the library of member Giovanni Giraldi (1712-53) — a provenance Pagani praises in his preface. I have found one other copy (Oxford). In good condition ( lightly browned).
