Per il Giuliano, [In Venezia, ed in Torino, 1781. [4] pp. 8vo. An apparently unrecorded work on the grisly murder of Francis Cestonaro in 1779 by his wife, Veneranda Porta, and her lover, Stefano Fantini. Cestonaro's body was cut up and the various parts dumped in the Venice canals. The murderers were hanged and Fantini was, fittingly, drawn and quartered. The story has passed into Venetian legend - William Dean Howells recounts it in Venetian Life as one of the three quintessential Venetian tragic legends that every gondolier has at the ready to recount. Not in OCLC Later drab boards. Some foxing and staining to text, paper repair to lower corner of second leaf [Attributes: Hard Cover]
