"Covoni is the only comprehensive source describing the Casino di San Marco, where glassmaker Antonio Neri worked at the beginning of his career in the early 1600s. While there are only a handful of direct references to Neri in the book, they contain some quite striking information not generally known... Included are a floor plan and the full inventory compiled ... after don Antonio's death in 1621"--Letter from Paul Engle.
