Mill, John Stuart
La libertá di John Stuart Mill. Traduzione fatta... dall'avv. G. Marsiaj
Turin: Tipografia della Rivista dei comuni italiani, 1865. 8vo, pp. 173, [1]; a little foxing, the first quire slightly loose, but a very good copy in the original cream printed wrappers, protected in glassine. Very rare first edition in Italian of On liberty, published as part 3 of the series 'Collezione di opere economiche, amministrative e politiche'. An instrumental translation which introduced this text to the Italian-reading public, half a century before the translation published by Gobetti.'John Stuart Mill's 'modest work' endorsed two key aspects of the ideology of modernity. One was the epic dimension of progress asserted confidently throughout the nineteenth century, the other that building block of enlightened civil society, individual liberty. Mill envisaged a social order whose dedication to protecting individual liberty promised the advancement of humankind. A society of rational, responsible, and independent adults would allow one another the freedom to pursue their higher interests' (D. Howland, Personal Liberty and Public Good: The Introduction of John Stuart Mill to Japan and China, Toronto, 2005, p. 3).Not in Einaudi, Mattioli, or Sraffa. OCLC finds no copies outside Italy (5 in Italian institutions).
