Giulio Ferrario was founder of the Società tipografica de’ classici italiani and served as the director of the Braidense National Library in Milan.  Beginning in 1821, he issued a multi-volume work on theAncient and Modern Costumes: The history of the government, the militia, the religion, the arts and sciences, and the customs of all people ancient and modern.”  This included a number of excellent views based on various artists.  This print is a lovely view of the Cofre de Perote volcano in the Mexican state of Veracruz.
