Description

Giuseppe PEANO
Comparative vocabulary. PEANO. Vocabulario Commune.
 
PEANO, Giuseppe. Vocabulario Commune ad Linguas de Europa [Vocabulaire Commun aux Langues d'Europe].  
Torino, Bocca, 1909

In-8vo, mm. 250x160; Brochure editoriale; pp. 87. Buono stato di conservazione.

Rara prima edizione. Peano si proponeva di codificare una “lingua comune”, utile soprattutto nei congressi scientifici, convinto che la migliore grammatica fosse l’assenza della grammatica: qui presenta un vocabolario fondato sul latino senza grammatica e senza declinazioni. Kennedy: “A vocabulary of international Latin, compared with English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Greek, and Sanscrit. … Nevertheless, he believed that further efforts would lead to a common language and he pushed forward his own project of publishing a comparative vocabulary. The first edition, with 87 pages, appeared in 1909.”
