In 1824 Conte Leopoldo Cicognara (1767-1834), a poet, amateur artist and a founding father of the discipline of art history, sold his collection of over 5,000 volumes on the subjects of art, architecture, and classical archaeology to the Vatican Library. This collection, the largest in the field at the time, brings together volumes dating from the beginning of printing to Cicognara’s time that include engravings, instructions on drawing and painting, books and pamphlets on museums and private collections, sale catalogs, and much more.
