TAX HISTORY – BROADSIDE: Forme delle nuove impressioni dei bolli [Forms of the New Impressions of the Stamps].
Place and Year: [Probably North Italy, circa 1830].
Technique: Letterpress and copper engraving 34 x 23 cm (13.4 x 9 inches) (slightly stained, soft folds, old manuscript verso, thin paper on the edges with natural tiny holes, otherwise in a good condition).
A rare, seemingly unrecorded broadside in Italian language presents 15 new Austrian taxation stamps. The broadside was probably made for the state officials after 1815 in the Kingdom of Lombardy–Venetia, when the region was annexed to Austria after the Congress of Vienna.
We could not find any institutional copies nor references to the broadside in the literature accessible to us.
