First edition. Cagnazzi (1764–1852) was originally a teacher of mathematics by profession, receiving a professorship at Naples in 1806. ‘His life was full of trouble; having been concerned in political intrigues, he had to flee from Naples and, after wandering, nearly always on foot, through Italy and Switzerland, and after being imprisoned more than once, he had to seek refuge in Florence. He returned to Naples under Murat’s government’ (Palgrave). He wrote a number of works on economics, and one on statistics, desiring ‘government interference whenever practicable, and wrote, in particular, a book on ancient and modern economical principles (Analisi dell’ economia privata e pubblica …) to point out that modern principles are preferable!’ (ibid.).

Third edition (first, Lugano, 1829) of a companion piece to Custodi’s monumental Scrittori classici italiani di economia politica, published in 50 volumes, 1803–16. With this work Pecchio supplies a biographical account of each author, as well as a historical introduction, chapters devoted to the Tuscan and the Neapolitan schools, and one chapter on the economic reforms of the eighteenth century. ‘Though written with a strong national bias, it may on the whole be reckoned a pretty fair, as well as a rapid and spirited, sketch of the works of the Italian economists’ (McCulloch, p. 31).
