Second edition, with engraved frontispiece portrait of Lodovico Muratori at beginning of the first volume. The first edition was printed in Latin. The book publishes basic narrative sources for medieval Italian history, and explores the institutions, manners and customs of the Italian states to the 13th century. Lodovico Muratori (1672-1750) was one of the leading Italian historians of his age. He is credited with discovery of the 7th century Latin manuscript now known as the "Muratorian fragment," containing the earliest list of books of the New Testament that were considered canonical. (The original text, now lost, is thought to have been written in Greek and is supposed to have dated anywhere from 170 to the 4th century.).
