Verona, Accademia di Agricoltura Commercio et Arti, 1855. 8vo (22.3 x 14.3 cm). Half-title, two title pages; xiii, 335 pp.; two plates, of which one in chromolithography and the second engraved and hand-coloured. Contemporary black pebbled half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with four raised bands; compartments with gilt vignettes and gilt title. Marbled endpapers; marbled edges.

A seldom-seen work on the malacofauna of the city of Verona and surroundings, in northern Italy, including the description and illustration of a new, large slug, which is still regarded as valid today. Little is known about the author, Luigi Menegazzi (1793-1854). He is not (yet) in 2,400 Years of Malacology. This publication was published posthumous. Provenance: a small stamp of the American malacologist Richard Irwin Johnson (1925-2020) on the half-title. Boards with a noticeable vertical crack, though the boards are still firm; slight foxing to the last few text leaves and plates, but otherwise in excellent condition. We found no auction records. Not in Nissen ZBI.
