The period covered in this volume was one of great political tension and uncertainty. Pontifical rule was re-established after the fall of the short-lived Roman Republic in 1799, but the States remained insecure. They were annexed by Napoleon in 1809. Prefaced with a detailed manuscript index, the volume's contents are arranged chronologically. Subjects addressed range from monetary policy to control inflation to laws restricting the manufacture and possession of firearms and the unauthorized export of antiquities or artworks. These latter proclamations were a reaction to Napoleon's infamous confiscations of Papal property. Manuscript additions to ff. 11-12 suggest the volume was likely compiled by a lawyer from the papermaking city of Fabriano in Le Marche, then a part of the Papal States. All of the thirty-one printed items are rare. Eighteen are not recorded on OCLC or ICCU. Of the remainder, seven are not traced outside Italy. A detailed complete list is available on request.
