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).
