Title with an autograph inscription in black ink in Italian signed "A Cametti" to Professor Alessandro Zacchiani "to remember, in the name of Rossini, the person through which [our] warm friendship was born." Dated Roma, November 7, 1916.

Several contemporary annotations in pencil, red crayon, and ink, perhaps in Zacchiani's hand, to both the pamphlet and several slips of paper laid in.

Minor foxing and wear, heavier to lower wrapper.

Cametti was an Italian writer on music, composer, and keyboard performer. "His major musicological contributions, based on important archival research, concerned Roman music history, particularly that of the theatre. His compositions are predominantly sacred; they include a requiem, motets, litanies, antiphons and vespers. Many of his manuscripts now belong to the Accademia di S Cecilia."
