Condition Report

First edition. Atlas that runs the work, titled "Italy ahead of the Romans." There is a large map of Italy in Roman times and sixty tables, including Cortona, Fiesole and a large Volterra plant. There are already edited monuments and an around twenty new ones. In the preface the author explains the reason for his work with the will to relinquish truth about ancient Italy from the legends and vulgates of the scholars, distinguishing between the history of Italy and the history of Rome and claiming the autonomous and original contribution of the indigenous peoples of Italian civilization. Brunet III, 1696; Vinet 1677.
