Ex Libris Victor Enmanuel (King of Italy)
A very important book by the Father of modern historical theory. Not bad for an ex Jesuit.
All editions were published after this 625 edition and differ in pagination. I surmise this 1625 edition is the true first while the subsequent ones corrected the errors noted in it. All notable US libraries, Newberry, Morgan, Huntington, etc. have the 1630 edition. Only two Italian libraries hold copies of the 1625 edition. The ice cream on the top is this book's Royal provenance.

Everything from bidding through delivery went perfectly.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Il venditore aveva scritto spedizione gratuita ma ho dovuto pagare 49€ per un pacco che pesava 1kg. Altri acquirenti hanno avuto la stessa sorpresa.What utter nonsense. I paid for shipping here in the US. The extra 49 euro charge was done by the Italian Post Office/Customs. I am not responsible for these extra charges. I also find it slanderous that this charge (that this is a pattern of mine) has been made at all.
The seller will ship the item(s) within 3 working days after receiving confirmation of payment.
