First appearance in print of this life of the Sienese noblewoman Onorata Saracini (née Orsini, 1435–1457), by her contemporary, the late fifteenth-century physician and writer Bernardo Lapini (or Ilicini), here edited by the Milanese print and old master dealer Giuseppe Vallardi (1784–1863) and published to mark the wedding of Beatrice Archinto and Emilio Altieri, Prince of Oriolo and Viano. Vallardi offers a brief survey of the life and writings of Lapini, and copious notes on the text.

In all, sixty-six copies were printed, in both quarto and octavo formats; of this version (in carta distinta levigata, in quarto), only twenty-five were issued.
