- About this book
This publication contains Antonio Conti’s complete autograph copies of his letters from Venice to the countess of Caylus. It also includes a Discourse on the State of France written by Conti in the year of his return to Italy. The letters were emended by the countess’ son with a view to publication, but were never printed. Conti’s letters and writings represent a corpus of original information and observations on the arts and sciences – in particular, music – in Venice and Europe at the end of the 1720s.
