Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine; fore-edges mended.First edition in latin, translated and edited by Paolo Aringhi, under whose name it is sometimes catalogued. Bosio (1576-1629), recognized as the "father of Christian archaeology," spent nearly forty years of scrupulous exploration in the catacombs of Rome. Three years after his death, the present work, in Italian, was first published under the patronage of the Knights of Malta. It is profusely illustrated with depictions of Roman tombs, coffins, and catacombs, as well as their mural and mosaic decorations, many of which have since deteriorated or been destroyed. The plates are identical with those of the 1632 edition. A very nice copy. Bookseller Inventory # 2479
