Piccoli Bronzi del Real Museo Borbonico … descritti e disegnati da Carlo Ceci.

The plates display a mixture of decorative bronzes, ornamental armour and weaponry, votive offerings, as well as more mundane items such as tools. Ceci was particularly interested in everyday objects used by Roman women, such as kitchen utensils, cosmetics, and toiletries.

Bibliothek des Vereins für Meklenburgische Geschichte und Alterthumskunde, wie solche am Ende des Junius 1836 bestand.
The Verein für Mecklenburgische Geschichte (‘Association for the history of Mecklenburg’) was founded in 1835. Here we have the catalogue of its library, with over 1500 books, as it grew over the years from its foundation to 1844. This is a fascinating record of local interest books, some published contemporarily but many from the preceding centuries, donated by its member. The library grew at a healthy speed of a few hundred books each year, and all had local interest. There was also a fine collection of books printed in the county of Mecklenburg. Mecklenburg is a relatively little known region in northern Germany, with Schwerin and the ports of Wismar and Rostock as its main towns.
