ansB16961

Bologna, Giovanni ZecchI, 1827. 20x27. Engraved title leaf + printed dedication leaf + 76 engraved plates + one leaf with list of the plates. Cloth binding (Nils Bernard Andersson 1949) with gilt-lettered leather label on spine. Some very light unobtrusive foxing mainly in margins, and some light stains in lower right corner. Gift inscription in Italian dated 1839.

Rare album with engraved renderings of architectural ornaments in Bologna. From the little known about Magazzari, he can be identified as a multifaceted figure, dedicated to restoration, architectural design, and engraving. Born around 1796, he studied between 1815 and 1824 at the Academy of Fine Art in Bologna, and was later made an honorary member of the Academy. It may be presumed that the incentive behind this album documenting the "choicest ornaments of Bologna" was the radical urban transformations undertaken in the city in the early 19th century.
