Archéologie, Littérature, Philosophie, Religion - Quantité : 1 - hors-texte collé - Livre

Uncommon first edition of archaeological scope on the reliquary of the true cross by the famous Cardinal Bessarione, printed in Venice in 1767 by Modesti Fentii.

The work contains a very important study about the precious Byzantine reliquary in silver, copper, bronze and precious stones donated in 1463 by Cardinal Bessarione to the scuola Grande della Santa Maria della Carità in Venice. In particular, its importance is attributable to the content of the reliquary: these are fragments of the cross and the robe of Christ.

The volume is embellished by seven large tipped-in plates, three times folded, finely illustrated depicting parts of the reliquary.

Condition: the volume is in excellent condition; some slight signs of wear and small marginal tears on the sheets.

The work is divided as follows: 154 numbered pages, 6 illustrated plates.
