Uncut and partly unopened in contemporary carta rustica

First edition of the Italian lawyer, senator, and scholar's anthology of mercantilist writings, published anonymously. Bertolini (1711-1782) studied at the university in Pisa and trained at the Pisa Law School where he graduated in 1734. He set up a legal practice in Florence before beginning his career as an official of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany in 1740, where he oversaw matters regarding agricultural production and related economic issues. He was a fervent admirer of Enlightenment writings, particularly Montesquieu's work; he published his Analyse raisonnée de l'esprit des lois in 1771.
