Summary expansion
Of these the best-known and most venerated, to this day, is San Gennaro (St. Januarius of Benevento); others include S. Agnello, S. Aspremo, S. Agrippino, S. Severo (St. Severinus of Noricum), S. Eufebio and S. Atanasio. An unillustrated and, according to the preface, unauthorized edition, in octavo, had appeared in 1573 from the press of Giuseppe Cacchi. The present edition is considerably revised and contains the seven extremely delicately executed woodcuts of the saints for the first time. It is a sumptuous piece of printing from Salviani's press, and one of the few illustrated Neapolitan books of the period
