Catholic bishop, spiritual writer, musician, and theologian (1696-1787) who founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer and is remembered for his prolific writings: Moral Theology, The Glories of Mary, and The Way of the Cross stand among his best-known works. LS in Italian, signed “Alf'o M'a Vesc'o di S. Agata,” one page, 6 x 8.5, no date. Letter as Bishop of Sant' Agata de Goti, to the historical printer and publisher Remondini in Venice. Liguori states that he received after long wait only the first and the last page of the second lecture note by C. Casazzi, so he asks for remaining sheets. He also asks to be sent the bill for the S. Tommaso tomes already received. He hopes that at this time the reprint of his 'La Morale' has begun, and also for the price of the "206 Apologies" received. In very good condition, with staining, a tear to the left blank area, and some old tape repairs.
