Raccolta di 50 Costumi li Piu Interessanti - Pinelli, Bartolomeo - 1814. 
Presso Lorenzo Lazzari, Rome 1814 - Black buckram, title page with engraving and 50 bw engraved illustrations. Text is in Italian. B/w engravings, each showing a woman and man in the clothing of inhabitants of towns and the countryside in various provinces near the region of Naples. The engravings are very detailed, showing scenes from various aspects of everyday life. Included are 22 engravings of Neapolitan styles, 7 from Molise (a region northwest of Naples, bordering on the Adriatic) and Abruzzo (a neighboring region, north of Molise). Molise and Abruzzo were one region until 1963. Good, ex-library with typical labels and stamps, plates are stamped -- not on illustrations. Water staining in lower third and small portion of top of all pages, involving at least the lower left corner of the illustrations. The plates and impressions, however, are quite bold and strong, and the plates could be restored nicely and/or cropped and framed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
