(Bologna): ca. 1902. Broadside. 8vo. 230 x 145 mm. (9 x 5 3/4 inches). Printed on tissue, with prices and notes in manuscript. Tiny hole where the broadside was hung, folds to corners, but otherwise in very good condition. Very rare survival of this list of cured meats with written prices in Italian lira, issued to Sig. Alfonso Scala, dated 11/10/2 (1902?) and signed S. Severo. The selection of cured meats includes mortadella (200 lira), salami fino (300 lira), prosciutto naturali (250 lira), pancetta (180 lira) and lardo (ranging in price from 165 to 180 lira). The must have been out of spalle (shoulder) as there is no price listed. The list also includes a little pasta to go with the meet, offering tortellini, priced at 6 lire per 1000 grams. (125).
