Yes Huck, I confirm that "annesso" means that Aldrovandi's museum was included in Cospi's Museum.
Thanks, I thought so.
Aldrovandi had some time in his youth in Brescia and Padova, on Venetian territory, and in Bologna he was accused of heresy in 1449 (27 years old), likely for some sympathy for protestantic ideas. He published the first book in Venice (which seems to have been a longer time the "only" book from him).
Perhaps his early Venetian connections made, that he later used a Ferrarese order and not a Bolognese in his Tarocchi description. Anyway, it would be nice to have this source ...
To these lists, commonly reported in the histories of cards, one can be added which is contained in a manuscript by the known scientist Ulisse Aldovrandi (1522-1605), Misc.A.21.II. The list is in Latin, but it entirely corresponds to that by Garzoni: MUNDUS, JUSTITIA, ANGELUS, SOL, LUNA, ASTRUM, IGNIS, DIABOLUS, MORS, LAQUEO SUSPENSUS, SENEX, ROTA, FORTITUDO, AMOR, CURRUS, TEMPERANTIA, PAPA, PAPISSA, IMPERATOR, IMPERATRIX, MIMO, STULTUS. It had already been published in a booklet(7) precisely devoted to that part of the codex describing games. However, since the booklet was printed for a wedding occasion and is relatively scarce, it escaped due attention by many scholars, except for Dr. Chicco, who found in it and in the codex essential information, for instance, on the early history of Italian draughts.(8) Since in several points Aldovrandi explicitly quotes Garzoni’s book, it must be assumed that the date of the text is in the 1590s and that the whole material derives from earlier printed documents.

For Frati we have, that he variously worked about Aldovrandi

The text of 1904 confirms with "per le nozze Zanichelli-Mazzoni", that the giochi text was made for a wedding ??????
... however, studying some Google results for "nozze Zanichelli Mazzoni", I get the impression, that the wedding took place in at 21 August 1904, and various authors wrote something.
compare http://badigit.comune.bologna.it/FratiS ... 14243&cp=1
Frati wrote his Aldovrandi text for this nozze, and not Aldovrandi his giochi text ... that's at least my impression.
A text of 1908, " Ulisse Aldrovandi e Ferrara", confirms, that there was a Ferrarese connection in his life (not mentioned in his wikipedia articles). But this wouldn't be a wonder, considering the close distance (possibly he worked with Ferrarese painters ?)
