Only the last page, which contains no songs or poems, but only editorial notes, is missing.

First edition of Leopardi's two poems on patriotic themes, written during the growth of nationalistic fervour after the fall of Napoleon in 1815, and dedicated to the poet Vincenzo Monti (1754-1828).

These two poems were later placed first in the collection of Canti di Leopardi (1824), demonstrating their importance to him.

The print run was about 300 copies, plus some special copies printed on blue paper and, despite the printed date of 1818, the booklet was published only in 1819.

Of the nine initial songs (1818-'22), the first five are partly inspired by Giordani's proposal of a poem as "civil magisterium" on classical models, but also by the indeterminate anxiety of great actions that Leopardi manifested several times in his letters and in the Zibaldone.
All'Italia and Sopra il monumento di Dante, of 1818, deal with explicitly patriotic themes, having in common the comparison between a glorious past and a present humiliated by slavery and cowardice.

    Seller didnt describe the lot completely. After receiving it I had to notice that it was not fully intact. The shipping costs were far too high (~3x of real costs). Communication not possible.
