Lot 679: Venetian critic and dramatist (1713-1786). ALS in Italian, one page, 8.5 x 12, December 30, 1773. Letter to Antonio Rambaldo, Count di Collalto. In part (translated): "I have described to this excellent Magistrate that Institution which I estimate the most advantageous and which could be most promptly executed I wish that soon Y[our] Ex[cellency] will let me find grace, and gratify at least my obedience, and this desire to let you know this profound veneration with which I propose to be." Gozzi strikes through several words and makes revisions throughout. A small cut to the blank area above his signature, paper loss to lower left corner, and some mild unobtrusive dampstaining to edges, otherwise fine condition.
