Rome, Edizioni di Storia e Letteratura, 1975 (1974)
Two volumes in one (25 cm), I (1975): 607 (3) pp., illustrations. II (1974): 108 (6) pp. Bound in red buckram, black skiver lettering-piece (a collector’s binding). - Part I is an offset reprint of the second, expanded 1964 edition; part II supplements that edition. “This remains a work of great stature. It will continue to be the starting-point for all who come to toil in the same field, and only their devoted labours for generations can possibly make it obsolescent” (from a review by John Horden of the 1964 edition, in The Book Collector, Spring 1965, pp.101-105). ¶ Excellent, unmarked copy.
