Very rare collection of odes and sonnets composed to mark the entry of Maria Teresa Melecrinis into the Benedictine monastery of San Paolo at Sorrento. 

Maria was born in Naples in 1820 and joined the monastery at the age of 25.  She fell seriously ill in 1856, following an earlier head injury, and although doctors were unable to help her, she recovered in 1858, her cure being credited to an effigy of Christ in the monastery.  An account of her ‘prodigious recovery’ is given in Due avvenimenti prodigiosi operati da un' antica effigie del Salvatore ... che si conserva nel venerando monastero de S. Paolo ... della città di Sorrento (Naples, 1860). 

The poems here are by Gaetano Polito, the Marchese di Sitizano, Niccola Taccone, and Giorgio Melecrinis. 

Not on OCLC.  We have been able to trace only two copies in Italy.
