Biographical data
Name: Egisti, Giovanni Antonio  
Born: 1811
Died:
 
Notes:
In Rivista scacchistic italiana (1900), Dubois has 'A. Egisti' on p.134, 'G. Antonio Egisti' on p.105, and 'S. Egisti' on p.216, which is likely a misprint. A footnote on p.105 mentions his brother Don Alessandro Egisti, the title 'Don' indicating a priest, who we must be careful to differentiate from Giovanni Antonio, especially since the latter seems to have preferred his second name and so 'A. Egisti' can also mean Antonio. In Eco della Scienza, dell'Industria e del Commercio (1864), Dubois distinguishes between 'Abate Egisti' (presumably Alessandro) and 'Egisti seniore', which probably means that Giovanni Antonio Egisti was older than his brother, Alessandro. In 1900, Dubois refers to Egisti as almost a nonagenarian, so I guess at 1811 for his year of birth.
