Del modo di mantenere abolita la mendicità, discorso familiare.
Only edition, very rare, of this proposal for the abolition of begging, and of poverty more broadly, by the poet and essayist Livio Pascoli.
Working from the basis that every person has a right to live, and that this right extends both to the poor and to the right to shelter and sustenance, Pascoli examines the ways in which those European countries that had not embraced charitable foundations and the principles of universal help tended to be those with the highest rates of poverty. Drawing on examples from Britain, Switzerland, and elsewhere, Pascoli explores the ways in which Italy might look abroad for ideas on minimising poverty, and advocates for assistance for the poor, exploring the effectiveness of various remedies.
Not in Goldsmiths’ or Kress. OCLC finds a single copy worldwide (Bocconi, Milan).

Thoughts and Details on the high and low Prices of the last thirty Years.
First edition of Tooke's first work, discussing the influence of climatic conditions and changing demand on agricultural prices. ‘During the three years which followed the Resumption Act of 1819 prices of nearly all commodities decreased, and the opinion that the fall in prices was the result of the return to cash payments gained support. Tooke’s efforts during his early years as an active economist were devoted to the defence of the resumption and the refutation of the claims that it was responsible for the decline in prices and associated crises’ (ODNB). Tooke was one of the earliest supporters of the free-trade movement and in support of these principles, he, along with Ricardo, Malthus, James Mill, and others founded the Political Economy Club in April 1821.
