About this Item

Title
Bizzarie di varie figure
Summary
It has been assumed that this volume comes from the library of Commendatore Ugo Ojetti of Florence, Italy. Of the nine copies known, this copy with 50 plates is the only complete copy known. The book was purchased from H. P. Kraus in 1957. Kraus purchased the volume from Carlo Chiesa, the noted bibliophile and bookseller from Milan, Italy. It is quite possible that the Ojetti copy passed through the hands of Chiesa before being sent to Kraus and then on to Rosenwald.
