Carlo Losi

?, 1757

Carlo Losi (publisher/printer; Italian; Male; 1757 fl – 1805 after)

Bookseller and print publisher in Rome. His address, often accompanied by the date of republication such as 1773, is found on numerous very late reprints of 16th and 17th engravings; he had almost no interest in new plates of topography, portraits or contemporary artists. His name is first recorded in Genoa in 1757 in a contract to reprint the Galleria Giustiniana. This never happened as he fled the city, leaving a pile of debts. Recorded working in Rome from the early 1770s; last recorded at his daughter’s marriage in 1805.
