Broadsheet (450x323 ca. mm). Woodcut arms of Carlo Livizzani, and opening decorative initial. A fine copy, uncut. Some browning along fold. Rare survival of a printed broadsheet issued by the Papal authority after the earthquake that on 3 June 1781 devasted Cagli and other towns of Marche, an Italian region characterised by a diffuse and frequent seismicity. The decree is signed by the president of Urbino Legation and future cardinal Carlo Livizzani (1722-1802), and contains measures for rebuilding, including severe prescriptions for architects, bricklayers, and carpenters.
