About the Author: Born 3 Jan 1698 dies 12 April 1782. He was a poet from Italy. Born in Rome and dies in Vienna. Most he is famous for his Librettos ( the story and words) for Operas. Many compossers used them for their operas. More than 800 operas have a Libretto by METASTASIO.
Considering they are 232 years old, they are in good condition. I confess I purchased them from England for display purposes. I mixed them with great English Antique items from England in my Bookcase. I have had them for over 40 years. PLEASE SEE MY OTHER LISTINGS FOR MORE GREAT ENGLISH AND NAUTICAL DECOR ITEMS.
I will pack them carefully and insure.
