Moscardo acquired the collection of Francesco Calzolari (1522-1609), a Verona pharmacist who had amassed one of the first specialised natural history collections. Moscardo added his own collection of antiquities, medals, and paintings.The first part is devoted to antiquities, medals, statues, and ethnographic objects (pre-Columbian shoe, etc.). 72 plates illustrate this section. The second and third parts are devoted to (mostly) natural history objects, including an extensive collection of shells, minerals and fossils, with 42 plates devoted to these subjects.The frontispiece depicts Nature (in a variation of the many-breasted Diana of Ephesus) flanked by Antiquity as an old woman and Art as a young woman. It is signed 'Albert Pasi fecit Veronae'.Provenance: Francesco Redi (1626-1697 or 1698), with his signature on front pastedown and title, and notes in the text in his hand (pages 57 and 118); Redi was a prominent seventeenth-century scientist who disproved spontaneous generation and did pioneering work on parasitology.
