[Italy. Book of monastery names] "Libro delle Ven. Compagnia del Sacramento

in quale sono desciti li Confrati, e Sorelle di detta Campag.a/ Rinovato l'anno 1682 da noi Priori di essa Pietro. Durante, Bernardo Aurame, e Gio: Batta Fignone". Manuscript in pen and ink, no place, from 1682, with in head margin dates from 1624-1711 (on leaf 149) followed by contributions dated up to 1751, collation of the numbered leaves, written on both sides: (1-26), 29-31,44-48, 50-68, 71-97, 102-103, 106-194, 196-217 lvs., in the original, blindstamped leather wallet binding dated "MDCLXXXII" on front board, folio.

Binding heavily affected by damp, leather loose from damaged boards and partly lacking. Bookblock still fine, besides the damp-affected head margin in the first 30 leaves, with loss to paging. A few leaves tender or loose, occ. leaves torn out, paging occ. omits numbers. Highly extraordinary, possibly unique list of names of the Compagnia del Santissimo Sacramento. We were unable to trace the location where this list was compiled. This book deserves a thorough restoration.
