Tesoretto per l’infanzia ossia 1000 disegni delle principali cose a sapersi col relative vocabolo Italiano, Francese, Tedesco e Inglese. IV. Edizione nuovamente disegnata ed incisa.
A good copy of this very rare illustrated dictionary of the principal things a child should know in Italian, French, German and English, published by the Milanese educational bookseller Andrea Ubicini.Ubicini published a number of works on language, including an Italian-French dictionary, as well as conduct books, childrens‘ anthologies, and even editions of poetry by the likes of Andrea Maffei. The present work contains 1000 engraved illustrations of objects, arranged alphabetically by the Italian name, with the names in the three other languages also provided; these range from everyday items (coffee roasters, watering cans, grass) to natural phenomena (volcanic eruptions, lightning), actions (inflating balloons, extinguishing fires, teaching), animals, clothing, architectural terms, and more. Although this is the fourth edition, the whole book is newly drawn and engraved for this edition, with a number of alterations in the objects shown compared with the second, which is the only other edition traced.
This edition not in OCLC, which records only the second edition, and only at the BL.
