About This Item

The John C. Winston Co., Philadelphia PA, 1977?. Special edition. Hardcover. Fine /Near Fine slipcase. "Rome,like the rest of Italy, acknowledged the superiority of Florence comparable to Athens itself, and all the cities of Italy did homage to her genius... In the course of a century, from Dante and Giotto to the first of the Medici, from the two Pisani to Brunelleschi, Donatello, and Alberti, Florence reached the summit of human thought and the zenith of plastic beauty. While at the very moment when it seemed as if she must [be] exhausted by the efforts which resulted in the birth of the Renaissance, she was about to produce two human beings, Leonardo da Vinci and Michaelangelo." [Introduction] Illustrated; plain dust jacket over decorative cover; silk ribbon; fold-out map; beautiful condition and book as art. Slipcase in Near Fine condition with some slight staining on front cover and early wear to corners. SPECIAL EDITION
