Fumagalli, Giuseppe.  
Bibliografia Etiopica [Bibliography of Ethiopia]. Catalogo Descrittivo e Ragionato degli ScrittiÖ fino a tutto il 1891.

Publisher: Milano, Hoepli, 1893; reprint Martino 2002.
Besterman 2067. Like most European powers in the late nineteenth century, Italy was determined to secure territories in Africa. The Treaty of Uccialli between Ethiopia and Italy was negotiated in 1890 in two versions, one in Italian declaring Ethiopia an Italian territory and one in Amharic permitting the king of Ethiopia to call upon Italy in time of need but saying nothing about its new territorial status. This wretched arrangement provoked a war in which the Italian army was crushed at Adwa in March 1896. Fumagalliís bibliography cites 2758 printed items with annotations. Oversize 8vo, iii-xi, 288 p.; binderís cloth; new from the publisher. (1052x)
