BORROMEO, Conte Antonio-Maria (1724-1813) -- Notozia de'Novellieri Italiani, posseduti dal Conte Anton-Maria Borromeo... con alcune novelle inedite . Bassano: Giuseppe Remondini, 1794.

Large 8o (218 x 142 mm). Contemporary Italian mottled calf, spine gilt with 5 raised bands (some wear, hinges partly split). Provenance: Joseph Rubinstein (bookplate).

Finely printed in the style of Bodoni and printed on thick paper, this catalogue of Borromeo's collection was to revive the taste for his contemporaries in the Italian novellieri. A part from being the "foundation of the bibliography of the Italian novellieri" it also contains ten hitherto unpublished stories. Taylor, p. 138.
