Priced bookseller's catalogue from the firm Libreria Nuova, whose shop was on the Via del Corso in Rome during the 1830's. The collection includes a list of books, mostly in Italian, from the 17th to the 19th centuries, with most titles printed during the early years of the 19th century. The catalogue is a mixed collection of history, science, literature, voyages and travel and medicine.

The final three pages include over 100 names of musicians whose music is on sale in the bookshop on the Via del Corso.

Little or no information could be found on the company Libreria Nuovo, suggesting a short career in the trade. There is a listing for an edition much like this catalogue in the Italian Union Catalogue at the University of Perugia only and no copies cited in OCLC or the Grolier Club.
