About This Item

Three volumes, 1994 pages. In Latin and Italian. Some bumping and abrasion to the Inside edge of the rear board of volume lll, a little corner-bumping to the front board of volume ll, some abrasion to the title label of volume ll, two very small stains on top edges of pages of volumes l and lll. All bindings tight, all pages bright and unmarked; interior of all volumes in fine condition. Bears bookplate of Prof. K.M. Setton (1914-1995) of the Princeton Institute for Advanced Study.

This is a very good copy of Sabbadini's exhaustive and hard-to-find edition of the famous epistolary of Guarino da Verona (Guarino Veronese, also Guarino Guarini) (1374-1460). Guarino left relatively little written work as he was primarily a teacher (and an evidently inspiring one), but he was extremely influential in establishing the groundwork and the ethos of the Italian Renaissance, and one of the most prominent early Renaissance humanists. His written legacy consists chiefly of this large collection of letters, exhaustively edited by Remigio Sabbadini, which is an unparalleled source of information and insights into contemporary life and thought in the early Renaissance. He was at the forefront of the intellectual world of humanistic scholarship, and thus of the beginning of the Italian Renaissance. His translations of some of the Greek classics are still studied by scholars today.

A limited edition 1967 anastatic reprint of the 1915-1919 original.
