Boxes 1-17 include unbound and bound Italian broadsides dating primarily from the period of Napoleonic domination of Italy,
especially in Rome, Bologna, Naples, and the Papal State. Some are printed in both French and Italian in parallel columns,
reflecting the day-to-day administrative problems of the French in Italy and the continuing Italian administration. The texts
include edicts, announcements, proclamations, decrees, and laws of church and military bodies and of local governments such
as Tuscany, Turin, and Piacenza. Members of the French military such as Leclerc, Berthier, Gilly, Mouton, Massena, and Talleyrand
are among the signers of the text. Some of the volumes also include pamphlets which primarily deal with the Roman Catholic
Church and the Papacy.
