Scarce first and only edition of this poem in memory of Maria Antinori, widow of the Marchese Consalvi, on her death at the age of thirty-five, penned by the poet, playwright, historical novelist, and art historian Giovanni Rossini (1776–1855). 

Loosely inserted in the book are a broadside announcement of Maria Antinori’s death and an autograph letter by Rossini to an unknown recipient, enquiring about the upcoming sale of paintings from the Rinuccini collection, praising two works by Carlo Dolci and predicting competition from Count Trivulzio. 

We have been unable to trace any copies outside Italy.
