6 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

14 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
