PASOLINI, Benvenuto -- Angelo UBALDINI. Catalogo dei libri posseduti dal Conte Benvenuto Pasolini, Faentino. Faenza: Tipi di Pietro Conti all' Apollo, 1857.
8o (253 x 163 mm). Original blue wrappers, uncut.
The privately printed catalogue of the private library of the one-time "sindaco" (i.e. syndic or mayor) of Faenza who died in 1871, and with whom the Faenza branch of Pasolini dall'Onda family became extinct, according to Crollalanza. The library consisted mainly of Italian books from the 15th to the 19th centuries, and a Italian manuscript on paper, dated 1345, of the Life of St. Badessa, Abbess of Santa Maria Novella of Faenza, by Don Sylvestro Ardenti of Florence. Ottino & Fumagalli attribute the well-compiled catalogue to Ubaldini.
