As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.
My antiquarianbook dealer in Bologna, www.fornieditore.com has advised me that this issue is now on sale at his establishment email@example.com. The title is " TEATRO GENEALOGICO DELLE FAMIGLIE NOBILI,TITOLATI,FEUDATARIE E ANTICHI NOBILI DEL REGNO DI SICILIA" (Palermo-Messina 1647-1670 $E160.00).
This historical,biographical,genealogical and Heraldic study complete with documentsd of Sicilan families of highlineage is in Italian language. Peter
I must ask this because you have the price quoted... is that a lot for a book like this, or is that about the average for that kind of info? I WAS going to be looking for books.. maybe I should just go to the used book store.. *smacking head*.
'If you never open doors to let anyone in, no one can get in, but neither can you get out.'
Thank you for the two fotos...The book is a collectors item and will cost about $200 for US$. It is for people who are collecting or perhaps the mormon church will buy it if they see it published around. What a pleasure to look into those eyes. Peter
Maybe they (the films) are categorized differently, if you do a search by the author as well (Filadelfo Mugnos) you only see that listing. If they were filmed I would order them as I have two early sicilian noble lines i'm trying to get info on.
I must confess the mormons out here are like everybody else...they can't think out of the box...and I see from your settings it is a book in 3 volumes but they swore upand down that the 945 series are micorfilm. I rely more upon your judgement than the Stepford wives that abound here in droves.
