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.
