This small volume described the procession of the Holy Sacrament through the streets of Naples in 1829. The yearly publication was produced by the Royal Printing House of Naples. This exemplar has probably been presented to Queen Maria Adele of Sardinia. Only the editions of 1825, 1826 and 1828 are recorded in public libraries worldwide.
