FIRST EDITION OF THIS METICULOUS WORK BY GIUSEPPE GRASSI, THAT LISTS ALL PARTS, TOOLS AND MILITARY EQUIPMENT
NO COPY IN USA

Grassi, Giuseppe. Dizionario militare italiano di Giuseppe Grassi dell'Accademia reale delle Scienze di Torino. Volume 1. [-2.]. Torino: dai torchii della vedova Pomba e figlii, 1817.

8vo (204x128 mm), full green leather binding, flat spine with gilt title and decorations, gilt frame at boards, marbled paper at paste-downs, brown sprinkled edges; 2 vols; pp. XXVIII, 179, [1]; 224.

Meticulous work by Giuseppe Grassi (Turin 1779-1831) that lists all parts, tools and military equipment, actualizing the work done by the writers of the past centuries with the innovations brought by the Napoleonic campaigns and then by the Restoration.

After this first edition, the Author expanded it by doubling the work with the help of some academicians of the Crusca who published it posthumously.
