A collection of Florentine ephemera, in no particular order, but more chronological toward the end. The monuments and churches of Florence are thoroughly covered, and the treatment of the reigns of the Hapsburg Grand Dukes (1765-ca. 1793 when the book comes to an end) is also extensive, especially in the area of civic ritual and festival. Other topics include politics, crime, plagues and natural disasters, wars, religious orders, confraternities, local families, local miracles, etc. Several prayers for specific feast days are entered in the text. Length of entries varies from a few sentences to several pages. Table of contents at the beginning (p. i-xii) bound in at a slightly later date.
