Notes

Far from being a direct translation as the publisher claimed, this work was a translation from French 1795 (year three) version of Harrington's Aphorism translated by Aubin for the Parisian printing house of Didot. The publisher, Nicolò Bettoni working for the Tipografia Dipartimentale, argued that Harrington's work was a valid theoretical tool to implement the political understanding of government. Moreover this work was essential for those interested in politics at a time when Europe was finally enjoying peace.
