Notes

First edition. Inscribed by the author on the title page: "All'egregio sig. Prof. Gilberto Gavi?". Father of the famous economist and sociologist Vilfredo Pareto, Raffaele Pareto (1812-1882) was a prominent civil engineer whose career began in France where he had sought exile following his involvement with Giuseppe Mazzini's movement for Italian unification in the early 1830s. When Pareto returned to Italy in the 1850s he pursued his brilliant engineering and administrative career, culminating as central inspector of drainage and irrigation. Pareto's published work was mainly concerned with the technical aspect of engineering, this essay is one of a few of a more theoretical nature.
