ARCHITECTURE -- (GORI, A.F.). Descrizione della cappella di S. Antonino vescovo di Firenze (…). Dedicata al medesimo Santo dalla famiglia De’Salviati patrizi Fiorentini. Florence, B. Paperini, 1728. (4), 72 pp. W. lge engr. ti-vign., 2 lge engr. initials, 4 lge engr. head- & tailpieces, & 8 fold. engr. plates (1 double-p., 4 fold.). Lge-fol. Cont. vellum w. gilt dec. back & richly gilt dec. borders on both sides, red mottled edges. (Erased stamp on ti., slightly thumbed in a few places, but an excellent copy). The text is by the Florentine architect and antiquarian Anton Francesco Gori (1691-1757). The preface is due to Alamanno Salviati, a scion of the noble Florentine family in which the cult of the Bishop was practiced, who is sometimes mistaken for the author. The chapel of Saint Antonine is inbuilt in the church of San Marco in Florence. - Cicognara, 4020 & 4086; Kat. Orn. Berl., 2692.
