BAC: British Art Center copy bound in contemporary quarter calf and green marbled boards.
Periodical, first published three weeks after the Great Exhibition opened in London. The text is an amalgam of translations from English, French and Belgian publications together with a smattering of additional matter catering to an Italian readership. The Kingdom of Sardinia (which included Piedmont) managed to send just under 100 items to the exhibition. The publishers evidently imported some of the wood-engraved blocks from British publications. Some appear to come from the Art Journal and the Illustrated London News. Some of the illustrations are by Dalziel.
