Suspected FOURTH edition reprint   (2013-02-07)
N.B. I am a moderately good reader of Italian. Also, I've reviewed this book elsewhere on WorldCat, and I believe there is a mistake in its labeling as "6th edition."
Lombroso published L'uomo delinquente several times throughout the late 19th century, with each edition being slightly different.
The authors of this reprint are NOT explicit about which of Lombroso's editions their reprint is based upon.
I have independently found a copy of Lombroso's 5th edition, and this reprint does not seem to match it.
As far as my research has shown, I believe that FIVE Italian editions were published in Lombroso's lifetime. Based upon my studies of French translations of the text, I am quite certain that this is a reprint of Lombroso's 4th edition.
