Second, revised and enlarged edition (first 1831), illustrated with sixteen handsome engraved plates.

Raffaele Gargiulo (1785–1870) was an Italian curator and restorer of art at Naples’ Real Museo Borbonico, as well as an art dealer in the Naples antiques market. Much of his work involved the restoration of vases, which, following the techniques of the time, he would often repair in part by using shards from other vessels and in part by manufacturing further shards to fit. Here Gargiulo imparts some of his wisdom on these matters, offering an early description and discussion of the restoration of ancient Roman and Greek vases.
