I have the Aegean Park Press copy of Sacco ("Manual of Cryptography",
"Translated from the original 'Manuale di Crittografia'").  Unfortunately
the d'Imperio Fig. 39 does not appear in the translation.  D'Imperio
says it's from Sacco 1947, p. 6, so I assume it would have appeared in
the Introduction under "Various kinds of secret writing".  However, this
is in the translation a short section in the front matter with no
illustrations.  There's no Urbino mentioned in the references.

Rats. :-(

I think we need an original Sacco for more detail on this one.

Though the Library of Congress doesn't have the 1947 Italian 3rd edition, it does have a French translation (from 1951), we might get lucky there:-
