Condition Report

Rare second edition in Italian. The "Breviarium politicorum, secundum rubricas Mazarinicas" is translated, an apocryphal work that presents a set of maxims for orienting oneself in political life. These maxims, written by a protagonist of political power in seventeenth-century Europe, ignore the abstractions that support politics and power, and are dedicated to the single individual who wants to prevail over others
The second work is a collection of proverbial sentences, of practical advice, which can be applied to the most diverse situations.
