4to., contemporary card wrappers, pp. 272. Second edition, first with this title, the first having been published in Assisi, the same year, with the title, “I liberi muratori schiacciati”. A work whose authorship is an issue of contention. On the title page of this copy is written: “del Sig. abate Pietro Mogas Sac. Spagnuolo d. C. di gesu con note dell’abate Pietro Saveria Casseda pompeiopolitano”. The authorship has also been attributed to the French mason Gabriel-Louis-Calabre Perau. Binding worn, spine tender, pages and card wrappers foxed, a hole burnt out of the outer margin of the title page, no more than 4cm in diameter, with no loss of text or printed material; otherwise a good copy with full margins, some pages uncut. Text in Italian.
