Notes: Italian printed statutes: a correction



In my recent brief account of the printed Italian statutes in the British Library, I made one misleading statement when I failed to mention the statutes of the Duchy of Savoy, of which the Library has three editions printed before 1600. I wrote: 'It will be noted that certain important cities, such as Naples and Turin, did not produce any early printed editions of their statutes'. Turin was in fact busily printing not the statutes of the city itself, but of Savoy, which, although not at that time politically part of Italy as we know it, deserves to be included here.
