No dates, author, or illustrator listed on this concertina volume, but a costume designer and illustrator named Guiseppe Capparoni was active in Rome during this time period and self-published other booklets of this sort demonstrating religious garb. This is a beautiful little record of the religious costumes worn in early 19th century Rome.
