A very old and interesting looking Italian book (I THINK, BY B. GAMBA), as my Italian is pretty crap. It is called CONCIONI ELOGI LETTERE FAMILIARI Del Card. GUIIDO BENTIVOGLIO. And looks like it was printed in Venice, in 1826. It has been signed on the first page inside cover by someone who owned it, (The initials are either NTC or MTC and the sir name looks like DEAU)... and dated MILANO 1827.
There are some pencil scribblings on the same page, but no other visible writing anywhere else. The remains of the original page ribbon is still there in page 102, as is a holy picture in Italian. One third of the spine is missing, and the rest is worn, with the gold lettering hardly visible, but it is in a very tight condition for it's years, with 237 pages, all intact, with a bit of what I call "AGE TANNING".

Pages 5 to 12 are about .25 to .50 Centimetres shorter at the bottom, than the rest, and a little more discoloured than the rest, but the mottled colouring on the page edges is still quite cool. A very interesting book.


The Measurements are:-

Length............... 6 3/8"...........................
Depth.................4"..................................
Width...................7/8".............................

Price 400 Euro, including free registered post.
