Principii di economia corporativa.
First edition. A mathematician by training, Amoroso (1886–1965) was inspired by Pareto to develop the relationship between pure economics and classical mechanics. ‘He also saw analogies between Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and economic phenomena’ (The New Palgrave).
‘During the Fascist period he was able, unlike some colleagues, to continue working in Italy. His Principii, written during this period, has discussions of money and equilibrium quite free from political implications and, in the third part, an economic theory of Fascism stated in analytical terms, which remains within the mainstream of economic science’ (Who’s Who in Economics).

[CHABANS, Louis, Comte de].
Raisons pour montrer que l’edit nouvellement faict sur les monnoyes est juste, et qu’il est au soulagement du peuple.
Rare first edition, Chaban’s analysis of the monetary reform designed by the French Crown to counter a persistent monetary crisis and its effects, exacerbated in the extreme by decades of religious wars: mounting inflation, deterioration of the coinage, overvaluation of foreign currencies, stagnant commerce and penury of grain supply. Chaban shows the common rationale behind every reforming provision. His treatise provides diagnoses to French monetary ‘maux’, professes belief in the corrective power of unified institutional policies, and places the cure – like the regalia and all issues pertaining to governance – in the hands of the Crown.
