Some of the facts mentioned in the following pages were included in a memoir read by Signer A. Castellani at a meeting of the Archaeological Institute in 1861. Additional particulars in a very concise form have now been given; and the whole has been printed for private circulation among the writers friends, in order to supply some information which may possibly be received with interest, and to give him an opportunity of expressing his very warm thanks to connoisseurs of art in England for the most kind and cordial reception he has experienced from them. London, A ug, 1862. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
