327; viii, 304 pages; Two volumes, bound in Library of Congress full tobacco-brown buckram, with original printed wrappers and pictorial jackets bound in. The standard history of the world's first (and continuing) University-- the Università di Bologna, founded in about 1088 AD. Very gently marked ex library set, with Library of Congress bookplates in each volume, and the Surplus-Duplicate stamp in rek ink on facing front endpapers. Faint evidence of the removal at some point of spine labels. (No card pockets or perforations). A clean and sound set; each volume is from the 1940 first edition. (There is a small rubber-stamp from the time of the Library of Congress' accession (1944?) at the foot of each of the original wrappers, printed in red and black -- this stamp, which is fortunately incorrect reads: "Monograph (Incomplete)." To the contrary, each volume is complete with the indices and 24 plates. The rear outer wrappers of each volume were also retained by the binder. Each of these wrappers, on thin, coated paper, has a printed price: "Lire Venticinque." These prices (25 lira) have been crossed out in pencil, and each wrapper has an interesting printed sticker from the Fascist government of Italy: "Aumento sulla Prezzo di Copertina 5% -- 25 Febbraio 1940 - XVIII." Mussolini imposed price controls on most aspects of Italian economic life starting around 1936 -- evidently including this 5% raise in the cover price of books in 1940. There are faint stamps on the versos of each title page with accession numbers, and dates "20-S-43" -- 17 days after Italy agreed to an Armistice with the Allies, which was signed on 3 September 1943. The two volumes appear to have arrived at the Library of Congress in Washington DC, October 1, 1944 (according to dated stamps on the final blank leaves of each volume). As to the remarkable history of the University of Bologna itself, perhaps it is enough to remind ourselves that the alumni have included: Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Becket, Petrarch, Leon Battista Alberti, Pope Alexander VI, Pico della Mirandola, Erasmus of Rotterdam, Albrecht Dürer, and Nicolaus Copernicus. To skip ahead a few centuries. others include: Guglielmo Marconi, Enzo Ferrari, Michelangelo Antonioni, the film director, and Giorgio Armani. The list of faculty is no less impressive, including: Dante Alighieri, Paracelsus, and Umberto Ecco. Two volumes -- text in Italian. N° de ref. de la librería 40052
