Celleberrimi Francisci Mazzola Parmensis graphides per Ludovicum Inig Bononiæ collectæ editæque anno MDCCLXXXVIII
Bologna, [by the author], 1788
A fine suite of facsimile reproductions of drawings credited to Parmigianino. The prints were executed by Francesco Rosaspina (1762-1841), except for one (plate ) etched by the promoter of the volume, the Bolognese connoisseur Conte Cesare Massimiliano Gini, and another (pl. ) probably etched by Giovanni Battista Frulli (fl. 1788-1837). Like two previous works of Gini, both issued in 1787, the work was published under the pseudonym Lodovico Inig (‘Inig’ being an anagram of Gini; ‘Lodovico’ perhaps a member of the family). Three of the twenty-five drawings presented were in Gini’s own collection; the rest were in the possession of friends, local collectors, and fellow-members of the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna (Accademia Clementina).
