Italian text

Seals have served to authenticate documents from time immemorial, but with the introduction of cachets in eighteenth century, they became works of art. Created by sculptors and engravers with a variety of materials, these cachets reflect the artistic trends of their periods. This volume presents over 500 illustrations of cachets, cataloged according to typology and material. Each is briefly described for its artistic and historic significance.
