Guglielmo Libri was one of the most prominent and controversial figures in the cultural world of early 19th-century Europe. His complex, multi-faceted personality has always attracted the attention of scholars. Libri assembled one of the largest private libraries in Europe, which included a vast archive of considerable historical value, of which the major portion is still preserved at the Biblioteca Moreniana. The present volume describes its dispersal as well as the Biblioteca Moreniana’s most recent acquisions.
