Notes
  • Title and statement of responsibility from Beall (cited below), as is English translation.
  • Date based on inscription in Cotsen copy; Beall suggests a date of second quarter of 19th c.
  • Lacking title page, apparently as issued (cf. Beall); the first leaf is numbered "1" at foot.
  • A collection of hand-colored lithographs depicting Neoplitan street-vendors, criers, and other local people in distinctive costumes, including a tambourine seller, a watermelon seller, an egg merchant, a money changer, a public scribe, and a street theater Pulcinella.
  • Illustrations: Each illustration captioned in Italian and signed "Lit. Bianchi" or "Lit.a. Bianchi"; lithographs after illustrations by Francesco Wenzel (cf. Beall).
  • Cotsen copy: Most ills. with penciled English translation below printed captions in a later hand, presumably by a reader; a few have question marks in lieu of a translation.
  • Cotsen copy: Leaf 12 bound in before leaf 24; leaf 13 detached.
  • Cotsen copy: Inscribed on front free endpaper (recto): "Gabriel C.D. Rossetti, to his dear sister Maria, 1837 [with 1837 crossed out], 1841."
Binding note
