Compendio della vita e miracoli della B. Elisabetta Picenardi del Terz’Ordine de’ Servi di M.V. E del culto pubblico ecclesiastico da immemorabil tempo da lei goduto, e che ultimamente è stato approvato dalla S. Sede con la concessione dell’ offizio, e messa, come risulta dal decreto, che si dà in fine di questo compendio. Seconda edizione dopo la Romana.
Second edition (first Rome 1804) of this account of the life and miracles of Elisabetta Picenardi (1428–1468) of the Servite Order, who was beatified in November 1804 after Pope Pius VII issued confirmation of her local cultus. The work is attributed to the Camaldolese monk Isidoro Bianchi (1731–1808). Another edition was published in Picenardi's home town of Mantua in the same year.
No copies traced outside Italy. OCLC records one copy of the Mantua printing (at the BL), but none of this Cremona edition.

Album of embossed heraldic letterheads.
An intriguing collection of embossed emblems, used to create an album of elaborate designs. Several designs appear to be arranged by their source, including two pages of Cambridge colleges and others of military regiments (both of which feature heavily throughout the album), while others are likely arranged aesthetically, for example one comprising only monograms and another only escutcheons. The emblems represent an extensive range of both institutions and individuals (including many devices incorporating women’s forenames), and alongside the familiar English and Latin mottos can be found examples in Hebrew and Arabic.
