Andrew  Robison: "Nothing will be lacking, neither in the correctness of the text, nor in the quality of the type, and of the paper: but above all I have endeavored to distinguish my edition with the singularity and perfection of more than sixty plates, all of different designs, drawn by the celebrated painter Piazzetta, and incised in copper by the most talented engravers. This printing will satisfy not only the poets, but also the painters, and the sculptors; and I expect that so many, and such fine ornamentations may never again be seen in any book" (quoted in Knox).  Haskell, Painters and Patrons, pp. 335-336: "Albrizzi's patronage of Piazzetta reached its climax in the most famous of all Venetian eighteenth-century books--the Gerusalemme Liberata... For this book Piazzetta produced some seventy drawings". 

Esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione.
