Ambrogio Lorenzetti; Enzo Carli, intro.
Ambrogio Lorenzetti [Il Buongoverno].
Published Ivrea: C. Olivetti & Co., 1954.
[No ISBN].
Binding: loose-bound sheets in a card folder.
Printer: not stated.
Size: 288x386x10mm.
Page count: 2 leaflets, 4pp and 2pp, and 12 cards mounting tipped-in plates.
Main language: Italian.
Overall condition fair: this copy looks rather battered, the paper surround protecting the card covers is quite worn on its edges and corners, some scuffs and marks, and rather grubby overall; some noticeable foxing, very heavy on the paper title and introductory leaflets, noticeable but not severe on the gloss-paper key, a little here and there on the card mounts, and occasional on the unprinted sides of the plates; text & plates appear to be free of readers' marks.
