1668- Giornale de'letterati d'Italia [1.1710 - 40.1740]
This title was preceded by several journals entitled Giornale de'letterati that lacked numbering; it was also continued by Nuovo giornale de'letterati d'Italia [1.1773 - 43.1790]. This also seems related to Il Giornale de' Letterati [Roma: 1.1668 - 14.1681]
