  • Lot# : 6367 Papal state

    1848 (July 13): Entire letter from Camerino to Tolentino, the interior with a most decorative handpainted letterhead during the period of the Repubblica Romana. The letterhead shows an obviously famous but unidentified person to whom a boot is to be put on by a military, while other people try to prevent this, also one person in a rowboat with an Italian tricolore. Aside this sketch is written: "chi la dura la vince / chi perde va a gambe in aria". A funny item.
