        La sicile. impressions du present et du passe'. paris, hachette, 1896.

      Cm. 35, pp. vi, 459 (1). Con moltissime incisioni xilografiche nel testo (anche a piena pagina) da disegni dello stesso autore. Solida legatura coeva in mezza pelle con ampie punte, dorso a nervi con titoli in oro. Taglio di testa dorato. Conservate le belle brossure originali decorate in stile Liberty. Bell'esemplare, assolutamente privo delle usuali fioriture. Dalla frequentazione e dalla stretta amicizia dell'autore con Giuseppe Pitré nasce la presente opera di storia siciliana a quest'ultimo appunto dedicata. Non si tratta quindi della comune raccolta d'impressioni pittorico-turistiche del viaggiatore straniero in Italia, ma di uno studio approfondito sugli usi, i costumi, la storia e le tradizioni dell'isola. Importante ed ormai raro soprattutto in questo stato di conservazione.

        Galileo a madame cristina di lorena (1615). padova, tip. salmin, 1896.

      Mm. 19 x 13, pp. 206. Ritratto di Galileo inciso all'antiporta. Bross. orig. con titoli a stampa. Qualche segno d'uso esterno ed una fenditura al dorso, peraltro ben conservato. Questo celebre libro di formato minuscolo si dichiara essere il più piccolo mai stampato con caratteri mobili. Il carattere utilizzato è noto con il nome di ""occhio di mosca"" e fu utilizzato dallo stesso editore per l'altrettanto celebre stampa di Dante del 1878. In fine appare la dicitura: stampato coi caratteri del Dantino onde superare qualsiasi altra minuscola edizione, Maggio 1897. Cfr. Welsh, A bibliography of miniature books, 2935; Fumagalli (Lexicon a pag. 276): ""...Les frères Salmin publièrent en 1897 une Lettera a Galileo... qui est, peut-etre, le plus petit livre du monde, veritable."".
