Condition Report

First edition. Excellent specimen of this historical work organically dedicated to San Marino. It is a rare and in-depth study on the chorography and history of San Marino, from its origins, to the first documentary attestations of the 11th century, up to the analysis of the form of government of the early 19th century. In 1802 Delfico became a citizen of San Marino and wrote this work to thank his generous guests, as he was strongly linked to the Republic of the Titano, where he found his second homeland. "Il suo pensiero filosofico, derivato in parte dalle idee del Cabanis e del Condorcet, rientra nel quadro dell'illuminismo?. Lozzi, II, 4730.
