On Rousseau's Discourse on Inequality

First edition in German of the Italian economist and politician's treatise on Rousseau's Discourse on Inequality, first published in Padua the previous year. At the age of 24, Carli (1720-1795) became the newly established professor of astronomy and navigation at the University of Padua. After the publication of several works on history and economics, he was successively appointed head of the council of public economy, privy councillor, and president of the new council of finances by Leopold of Tuscany.
