[VALERIANI MOLINARI, Luigi].
Del prezzo delle cose tutte mercatabili. Trattato legale-economico ove incidentemente si additano i veri principj della moneta …
Very rare first edition. ‘Valeriani (1758–1828) was something of a polyhistor and much admired in his time and country. The little steam he reserved for economics was put to good use, however, in his theory of prices (Del prezzo delle cose tutte mercatabili, 1806), which could have taught Senior and Mill how to handle supply and demand functions’ (Schumpeter, p. 511n).
Trattato de’ banchi nazionali del regno delle Due Sicilie … volume unico.

The final part deals with payments, money transfer, bills of exchange, and interest rates.
