    BROGGIA, Carlo Antonio (1698-1767). Trattato de tributi, delle monete, e del governo politico della sanità. Naples: Pietro Palombo, 1743. 8° (195 x 114mm). Engraved initials, woodcut tailpieces (some spotting throughout, a few gatherings browned). Contemporary vellum, lettering-piece (label a little chipped, lightly soiled).

    FIRST EDITION. According to Schumpeter, Broggia was one of the originators of a pure theory of taxation. His Treatise on Taxes, Money, and the Policy of Public Health is "a digest of all that was best, not only in the public-finance literature of the eighteenth century but also in most of that of the nineteenth" (Schumpeter p.205). Goldsmiths' 7984; not in Kress.
