A manual of letter-writing, illustrated throughout with examples chosen from the author's apparently very large oeuvre. The examples are on a variety of subjects, mainly chosen to illustrate the changes in tone and style of address to be used in addressing correspondents of varying stations. Fontana was of a prominent family of Parma and apparently wrote most of these letters while a resident in the estate of his patron, Count Alessandro Sanvitale. Rare; OCLC gives four locations, of which only one in the U.S. (Stanford). From the library of artists Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate bookplate inside front cover.
