Summary NoteThis publication is known to exist in at least two states. In state 1 the signature on leaf B1 is under "esemplare" and that on leaf E1 is under "squisita"; in state 2 the signature on leaf B1 is under "gran stile" and that on leaf E1 is under "con." The Royal Academy's copy is in the second state. Cicognara also records an issue on 'carta grande velina d'Inghilterra'.

The plates are all outline drawings. The frontispiece and plates 1-31 show sepulchral monuments in Florence; plates 32-47 show monuments in neighbouring towns (Fiesole, S. Miniato, S. Francesco di Paola, Certosa, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Pistoia, Lucca, Prato, Volterra). They are the work of designers of many periods, from Roman sarcophagi to Canova.

The title-plate carries the monogram 'GG', presumably indicating the publisher Giuseppe Gonnelli.
Responsibility NoteThe frontispiece is signed as drawn by Go. Baccani and engraved by G. Silvestri. The numbered plates are signed with the name of the source artist(s), and as drawn by V. Gozzini and engraved by Lasinio figlio, apart from pl. 39, 40, which are signed as drawn by Bartolini and engraved by Lasinio figlio. The title-plates is signed as engraved by G. Frilli.

The publication is dedicated by Giuseppe Gonnelli to Prince Niccola Esterhazy di Galantha.
