First collected edition of all the written memoranda and oral evidence Marshall prepared on economic questions for government departments and official enquiries, with the exception of his work on the Labour Commission. The collection was edited by Keynes, who provides a preface: ‘generally speaking, the Memoranda and Minutes of Evidence have been printed in extenso and without modification. A few misprints have been corrected, some passages from the Memoranda repeated in the Minutes of Evidence have been omitted, and a verbal change has been made in accordance with Marshall’s known wishes’ (Preface, p. [vi]).

POST-NAPOLEONIC PAPAL CONSTITUTION [PAPAL STATES.]

Constitutio Sanctissimi Domini Nostri Pii PP. VII. super restauratione regiminis pontificii.

Very rare Ancona printing, in the same year as the original Rome issue, of this Papal decree issued the day after the restoration of the Papal States after two years of the Napoleonic Roman Republic. The fall of the Republic was triggered by the arrival in October 1799 of Neapolitan troops, but it was not until June 1800 that the Papal States were restored, and this constitution is a fully worked-out statement of the ways in which the economy and legal system of the States was to be organised. The volume sets out the organisation of public administration and the roles of officials, the structure and competences of courts and tribunals, both civil and criminal, and the procedures for the election of magistrates. Two circulars tipped in at the end, both dated November 8, 1800, relate to the operation of the Sacra Congregazione del Buon Governo and its role in restoring the form of governance active before the French occupation, an occupation which was to be renewed later in the decade.
