From the 'Bibliographical Nightmare' to a Critical Bibliography. Tesori politici in the British Library, and Elsewhere in Britain

Simone Testa (notes)

Abstract

This is the first critical bibliography of one of the most intricate bibliographical cases of early-modern Europe: the Tesori politici (1589-1618). For the first time, printers involved in the publication, dedicatees, and many authors of the various texts have been identified; the complete content of the various editions, reprints, and translations exposed; texts are referred to manuscript versions held in the British Library, and elsewhere in Britain. The research shows the difference between the three Tesori politici ; reveals the previously unknown, wide circulation the Tesori politici enjoyed in Britain; and suggests they were important publications for the development of the contemporary discourse on raison d'etat .
