About This Item

248 pages with bibliography and index. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") bound in original publisher's blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine in original pictorial jacket. The problems which troubled people's minds during the Italian Renaissance were much the same as today. In trying to cope with them, many deep thinking people turned to Marsilio Ficino for help. Through his letters he advised, encouraged, and occasionally reproved them. Fearlessly he expressed the truth and his wisdom influenced many of the finest Western minds. He numbered statesmen, popes, artists, scientists, and philosophers amongst his circle. Condition: Previous owner's name to inner margin on contents page, some occasional marginalia else very good in a near fine jacket.
