About This Item

Reformed Police Force

[PUBLIC ORDER.] Regolamento sulla Istituzione del Corpo dei Carabinieri Pontifici.

[together with:] GALASSI, Vincenzo. Sentimenti morali e brevi Istruzioni per un Carabiniere. Rome, Vincenzo Poggioli, 1816.

Two works in two volumes, 8vo, pp. 116; 72; contemporary full red crushed morocco, sides and spine decoratively gilt, gilt-lettering directly to spine, a.e.g., with attractive yellow pattern-paper endpapers; a fine set.

First edition, rare, of the rules governing the reformed papal police, based on the French Gendarmerie, and replacing the discredited earlier 'sbirri' of the Papal States.

Whereas the earlier police force of the Papal States had been mainly responsible for executing the dictates and warrants of the judiciary, and were directly under the control of the various courts of Rome, the new police force, the Carabinieri Pontifici were to be made more accountable, and organized in a strictly hierarchical structure. A lengthy set of rules specify structure, duties and discipline for the organization. The regulations give pay and chains of command, details of outfit and equipment, pensions etc. Clear controls are put into place against unauthorized arrests etc. In individual tables the main functions of the police are outlined, and details of deployment are given, within the different parts of the city. Some of the police are deployed on foot, others on horseback. These reforms were executed under the leadership of Cardinal Consalvi, who argued that the Carabinieri had to be a 'moral force' representing a moral and all-powerful regime.

The second work, Galassi's Sentimenti Morali e Brevi Istruzioni per un Carabiniere gives a more detailed insight into the everyday procedures and working practices of the Papal Police, with information on investigative practices, how to deal with fires, special regulations for policing markets, fairs and public events, how to deal with remand prisoners, how to transport prisoners to courts, etc. A handy compendium of useful documents concludes the volume.

About SUSANNE SCHULZ-FALSTER RARE BOOKS

I specialize in printed books and manuscripts in the humanities, with a special emphasis on the quirky, unusual and the beautiful. My stock is particularly strong on the European Enlightenment and the early industrial revolution, its philosophy, impact on commerce and everyday life, technological developments, and view of women.I am also interested in the practical production of books and the distribution texts, and thus offer printer's and engraving manuals, books on copyright laws or censorship, and early library or publisher's catalogues. I issue regular illustrated and fully annotated catalogues and exhibit a major international book fairs.
