An anthology of writings from the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries designed to illustrate the life and thought of Italians for students and the general reader. It offers a broad sampling of humanist work by educators, statesmen, philosophers, churchmen and courtiers translated into English. This is a reprint of a book first published in 1965.
'This collection of humanistic prose is invaluable to all those who contemplate the history of western civilization, but most especially to students of the Italian Renaissance history, literature, philosophy, and art history who will greatly benefit from this engaging scholarly survey of hard-to-find original texts of important works.'Christiane L. Joost-Gaugier, Sixteenth Century Journal
