About This Item

[Naples:] , 1782. Quarto (231 x 160 mm). 19th-century pebbled cloth, double rule blind stamped border to covers, spine ruled in blind, lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. One or two tiny nicks to the cloth, corners lightly rubbed, with a little surface marking; paper stock lightly browned, more severely in places, as usual; a very good copy. First edition of this scarce work, which earned Galiani the chair of first assessor in the council of finances in Naples. The book was written during the war between England and France in 1778, during which the Kingdom of Naples stood neutral. It points out the rights and duties of neutral and warfaring powers. Several chapters discuss aspects of trade and economics. "He investigated, with much originality, the fundamental problems of economic science, opening the way to its future progress" (Palgrave II, p. 178). Einaudi 2328; Sraffa 1939; not in Goldsmiths' or Kress.
