First edition. Description of the cabinet assembled by Charles Michetti in Vienna. Michetti stresses in his introduction that his collection was put together not for financial gain but because he liked the look of the pieces and appreciated their artistic merit. The bulk of the collection is made up of prints but there are also paintings, Etruscan vases, jewellery, a microscope from England, and a collection of books, particularly strong in the arts.

No copy in RLIN or OCLC.
