When this collection of Latin literature appeared in 1766 it was the most comprehensive ever published. Count Carlo Mosca Barzi was the maecenas who provided the means to publish this 6 volume work, containing nearly 3000 pages. The count financed a publishing house which took the name of Amati ( Amatina Chalcographia). The publication is reputed to render the texts with great accuracy. On top of that it contains many texts which were hitherto never published, especially from the Early Christian period. (See lemma Amati in ''Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani - ). Complete sets in fine condition appear rarely on the market. .
