First edition of this pamphlet “on the origin of the hierarchy and the Concordats” by the Italian historian, Carlo Denina (1731-1813).

Exceptional copy that was probably given by the author to the diplomat and politician François Barbé-Marbois (1745-1837) first president of the Cour des Comptes appointed by Napoleon I after page 12 handwritten in pen (not signed).

"All' Eccellentissimo Signor Conte Barbé Marbois... Carlo Denina ardisce di presentare ... questo opuscolo italiano non indegno, per la qualité del soggetto, di venir sotto gli occhi di un Magistrato Letteralissimo, e della gentilissima e coltissima di lui figlia "
