9 Fonzio, Bartolomeo; Alessandro Daneloni (Ed. ) & Martin Davies (Trans. ) BARTOLOMEO FONZIO: LETTERS TO FRIENDS
Harvard University Press 2011 0674058364 / 9780674058361 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Book is fine. DJ has very light shelfwear. ; Bartolomeo Fonzio (1447–1513) was a leading literary figure in Florence during the time of Lorenzo de’ Medici and Machiavelli. A professor of poetry and rhetoric at the University of Florence, he included among his friends and colleagues leading figures such as Marsilio Ficino, Angelo Poliziano, John Argyropoulos, Cristoforo Landino, and Pietro Soderini. He was one of the principal collaborators in creating the famous humanist library of King Mattyas Corvinus of Hungary. As a scholar and teacher, he devoted himself to the study of classical authors, particularly Valerius Flaccus, Livy, Persius and Juvenal; his studies of Juvenal led to bitter polemics with Poliziano. Fonzio’s letters, translated here for the first time into English, are a window into the world of Renaissance humanism and classical scholarship, and include the famous letter about the discovery in 1485 on the Via Appia of the perfectly preserved body of a Roman girl. ; The I Tatti Renaissance Library; 256 pages

21 Laigneau-Fontaine, Sylvie PETITE PATRIE L'Image De La Région Natale Chez Les Écrivains De La Renaissance
Librairie Droz 2013 2600017151 / 9782600017152 Paperback Very Good 
Some scuffing/staining to front wrap. Else book is fine. ; This collection, based on an international conference that took place at the University of Dijon in March 2012, addresses the theme of the “native region” as it appears in the works of Renaissance authors whose languages of expression were Latin and French. The contributors offer several reflections on the image that these authors left of their “little homeland”, to borrow Cicero’s affectionate description of Arpinum. After an initial discussion of authors from southern Europe such as Mantua’s Battista Spagnoli and Spain’s Juan Luis Vivès, the volume takes as its central object the Humanist writers of northern Europe, both the famous and the more obscure, from a variety of national origins (Flemish, German, Scottish, French…). The chapters reveal several prominent characteristics of a northern humanism which, by articulating a northern, regional identity, confirms its opposition to (and rivalry with) southern humanism. They also analyze the diverse modes of description by means of which poets seek to describe their native region. Often laudatory, more rarely critical, these descriptions are sometimes “deflected”, for example when the “little homeland” is not the place of birth per se, but another, adopted place. At other times the birthplace is even rejected, most notably by Protestant authors. Taken together, these chapters present a vast overview of the images of their native region that nearly thirty humanist authors left to posterity. The writings here examined are by humanists from various countries, of diverse confessional affiliations, who composed their works in a variety of literary genres, yet all of them bear witness to the rich fecundity of this motif for a hermeneutic reading of their works. ; Travaux D'Humanisme Et Renaissance DXXI; 391 pages

36 Richardson, Wade READING AND VARIANT IN PETRONIUS Studies in the French Humanists and Their Manuscript Sources
University of Toronto Press 1993 0802028667 / 9780802028662 Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Light rubbing to front cover. ; Critical editions of most classical authors are based on readings transmitted by medieval scholars that can be examined and collated. Modern editions of Petronius, on the other hand, are principally based on printed editions, most of them published in France during the sixteenth century. In this volume T. Wade Richardson considers the use made of the Petronius manuscripts then extant by seven French humanist editors for their various editions, commentaries, and notes. Some of the manuscripts they used may be equated with extant exemplars, which therefore serve as a good check on the quality of their readings. But as much as half of the text rests on the sixteenth-century witness alone. Through a broad and integrated study of the problems of the Petronius text the author attempts to unravel the tangled skein of humanist work on Petronius, to settle some of the old textual puzzles, and to solidify the text and recast the apparatus. Richardson also provides information on the codicology and palaeography of the texts and on the talents and habits of the scholars who created them. ; Phoenix Supplementary Volume; 0.84 x 9.42 x 5.98 Inches; 187 pages

37 Rummel, Erika THE CASE AGAINST JOHANN REUCHLIN Social and Religious Controversy in Sixteenth-Century Germany
University of Toronto Press 2002 0802036511 / 9780802036513 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
The case of Johann Reuchlin, one of the best-known controversies of the 16th century, has been interpreted in many ways: as a case of anti-Semitism, a controversy between humanists and scholastics, or a case foreshadowing the Reformation debate. The last interpretation was facilitated by Luther himself, who repeatedly linked his case with that of the biblical humanists Lefevre, Erasmus, and Reuchlin. In this lively critical analysis, Erika Rummel describes how the second interpretation, which was promoted in the 19th century, was replaced after WWII by a new sensitivity toward the anti-Semitic elements of the affair. More recently, however, the favoured approach is a more nuanced interpretation, acknowledging that the controversy is informed by a combination of social and intellectual currents and reflects both anti-Semitism and academic strife. The section containing the analysis is followed by documents illustrating the case, some of them translated for the first time into English. ; 0.5 x 9.1 x 6 Inches; 208 pages

40 Thompson, Sister Geraldine UNDER PRETEXT OF PRAISE Satiric Mode in Erasmus' Fiction
University of Toronto Press 1974 0802052908 / 9780802052902 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Ex-library copy with usual stamps, call numbers and pocket. 1 small tear to DJ. Gift inscription from author to Sister Marie Therese. ; The last decade has seen a renewal of interest in the works of Erasmus. Much has been written on the educational and editorial writings of that great humanist of the northern Renaissance, but relatively little on his fictional work. This book deals with the fiction of Erasmus and what it contains of instruction and delight. The attention of the study is focused primarily on the four satiric works: The Praise of Folly, the Colloquies, Julius Secundus, exclusus, and Ciceronianus, although the author, in the process of analyzing and appraising, looked for analogues and explanations in the educational exegetical works. Three aspects of Erasmus' thought are considered. The first is his insistence on man's capacity for betterment through good teaching -- the formal teaching of a preceptor, or the incidental teaching of a good satirist or storyteller. The second is his notion of what man is and to what end he is to be educated. (Man is, of course, bent to knowledge and virtue, but one cannot afford to be too simple in one's appraisal of Erasmus' moral emphases -- the moral life involves both doer and spectator and is strongly dependent on the thinking process, although not divorced from the act of willing, and, activated by faith and the grace of God, is never far removed from creed and devotion. ) The third aspect is Erasmus' special use of irony -- an irony both dramatic and satiric --subtle and various, and doubly pronged so that it punctures what it praises but also questions the too obvious alternative, and leaves the reader pondering the whereabouts of the right and the perimeters of truth. To quote the author: 'It seems to me that the fictional works are the exempla that give life and specificity to the great theories of a great man, and a study of them should not be without interest.' ; Erasmus studies; 198 pages; Signed by Author
