Descripción

English translations of Manzoni's Storia della colonna infame (1st Italian ed., 1840) and Beccaria's Dei delitti e delle pene (1st Italian ed., 1764). xxii, 212 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket (unclipped). Oxford Library of Italian Classics. PMM 209 (1764 ed.). '[Manzoni's I Promessi sposi] was published, after being deeply reshaped by the author and revised by friends in 1825–1827, at the rate of a volume a year; it at once raised its author to the first rank of literary fame. It is generally agreed to be his greatest work, and the paradigm of modern Italian language. In 1822, Manzoni published his second tragedy, Adelchi, turning on the overthrow by Charlemagne of the Lombard domination in Italy, and containing many veiled allusions to the existing Austrian rule. With these works Manzoni's literary career was practically closed. But he laboriously revised The Betrothed in Tuscan-Italian, and in 1840 republished it in that form, with a historical essay, Storia della colonna infame, on details of the 17th century plague in Milan so important in the novel' (Wikipedia).
