Collection of four extremely rare historical works with a southern Italian subject. I: Rare and early publication by the prolific Neapolitan Jesuit Garrucci (1812-85), unrecorded by De Backer/Sommervogel, about ancient inscriptions discovered in Salerno.

II-IV: Three works by Francesco Adilardi (1815-52) on Calabrian church history, the second inscribed by the author to the Duc de Luynes on the half-title. The Duke's autograph table of contents for this made-up volume is on the rear flyleaf.

Insignificant foxing; very appealingly bound. Removed from the library of the Ducs de Luynes at the Château de Dampierre: their bookplate reproducing the arms of Charles Marie d'Albert de Luynes (1783-1839), 7th Duc de Luynes, on pastedown.
