The first edition of these bibliographies, printed in Pisa in 1790, was based on the Aldine collection of Cardinal Lomenie de Brienne (a collection later acquired by Renouard). The preface kindly asks readers for corrections, particularly as they relate to items that are included incorrectly as Aldine imprints, or are overlooked and should be added. Such notices are to be sent to Abbot Antonio Cesare Burgassi, who, for this reason, is assumed to be the author or compiler of this work. Subsequent editions incorporate many such improvements.

These small volumes mark a notable improvement over the earlier efforts of Domenico Maria Manni and Christian Unger. The lists are increasingly complete as new imprints are discovered, and the descriptions include formats as well as pagination or leaf counts.
