1 NICOLO ENZZO SAVIO [?] c. 1750 HANDWRITTEN ORIGINAL ITALIAN MILITARY MANUSCRIPT BOOK: OFFICER TRAINEE'S VADE MECUM
Italy 1758 Very Good Italian 
On offer is a super 1750s handwritten Italian manuscript book of militaria which appears to have been an officer in training's vade mecum notebook or journal as evidenced by an extensive three page 'Tavola' [Table] of Contents with chapters on military protocol, etiquette, theory, tactics and practice +++. This 250+ year old manuscript is bound in simple, though charming, beige colored thick card stock with a fold over flap and a very interesting binding on the spine. Both covers are blank with no writing, titles or designs with the exception of the letter "T" handwritten on the back cover. The text paper is of premium quality with a partial watermark discernible. As to authorship and ownership the only clues are on the last pages wherein our author made some personal notes including references to "Capitan Tenente [Lieutenant Captain], 10 Giugno 1758 and with a name "Nicolo Enzzo Savio[?]." Researchers with a facility for Italian will most assuredly be able to fill in the blanks. The book has one page preface, three page 'Tavola' of contents and then 158 pages of writing + 11 blank pages for a total of 175 pages. [The author hand numbered and miss-numbered the pages twice at pages 68 (for one extra page) and page 105 (for two extra pages) but stopped numbering at page 158.] There are also a number of stubs of paper having been cut or torn out but no evidence of any writing or ink anywhere on the stubs. The last page of text does seem to conclude this manuscript. 5 1/2" x 7 3/4" soft cover. Overall VG.
