Rare first Italian translation of the Wealth of Nations, probably the rarest of the eighteenth century full translations. No copy has appeared at auction since 1963.

Five volumes, octavo (181 112mm). Volume 5 in contemporary vellum, spine lettered and numbered in gilt panels, volumes 1-4 rebound to match. Complete with all the half-titles and index leaves. A few small wormholes to the spine of volume 5, not entering the text. Half title and title to volume two with two small wormtrack holes, volume four with wormtrack damage to the gutter very skilfully restored, occasionally touching the text, the missing text supplied in pen facsimile. Occasional spotting and staining as usual. A very attractive set.

Bibliography: Einaudi 5343; Goldsmiths' 14107; Kress B.1987; Tribe 39; Vanderblue p. 29 but lacking the fifth volume.
