Check out the Italian Pamphlet Collection from @fordhamlibraries. 
This #CONTENTdm collection of approximately 1,600 short printed pamphlets was published in Italy, largely from 1815 – 1880, and markings on several of the items appear to link the collection with Cardinal Carlo Luigi Morichini (1805 – 1879) as a former owner. The pamphlets reflect the Catholic Church's outlook on and response to the sweeping changes occurring in 19th century Italy, a period that witnessed the national unification of the Italian peninsula and the corresponding secularization of civil, political, and educational institutions.
