Oxford University Press 1985 0198229348 / 9780198229346 Hardcover Very Good- in Very Good dust jacket 
Ex-library copy with usual stamps, call numbers and bookplate. Stamp to top of textblock. Front endpaper has adhesive remains. Adhesive stains to boards. Back bottom corner is bumped. Dustjacket spine is sunned. Dustjacket has mild rubbing. ; Oxford Historical Monographs; 1.1 x 8.84 x 5.9 Inches; 300 pages; European history from 1480 to 1570 was a period of turbulent change, political upheaval, profound moral questioning, and urgent philosophical speculation. This book explores the intriguing role of the almost-forgotten Congregation of Benedictine monks of Italy and southern France in the events of these tumultuous years. From archival and published records, the picture emerges of a closely-knit order of humanist scholars whose religious and philosophical studies later put them in a unique position to understand the Reformers. The book also casts light on the monks' fascinating reaction to the Reformation, as they poured out a stream of academic books, tracts, sermons, and poems in their attempt to heal the deepening rift between Rome and the Reformers. Critized and misunderstood by all sides, the Congregation gradually fell into decline until it was finally suppressed under the Napoleanic invasions.

Light wear to corners. One corner is creased.

Née comme un simple passe-temps, comme un jeu destiné au délassement et au plaisir, bientôt élevée au rang de rite cardinal de la société mondaine, elle s'ouvrit peu à peu à l'introspection, à l'histoire, à la réflexion philosophique et scientifique, au débat d'idées. Son théâtre privilégié était les " ruelles ", puis les salons où la noblesse, ayant déposé les armes et exclue de la sphère politique, fondait désormais sa supériorité sur un code raffiné de bonnes manières et un idéal de perfection esthétique. ; 486 pages

Tear to head of spine with small piece torn off (1 cm). Sticker damage to rear wrap (small area of colour loss). ; Catalogue from the exhibition held at the Morgan Library and the Centre Canadien d'Architecture in Montreal; with four critical essays and the main catalogue with 128 b/w illustrations & 9 colour plates; 293 pages; The response to Rome by eighteenth-century Italian, French, and British artists is the subject of this beautifully illustrated, large-format book. The focal point is a group of approximately 40 drawings and prints by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) , whose dramatic and often fanciful views of Rome helped to create and spread a new vision of antiquity. Most of the works illustrated are drawn from the collections of the Canadian Centre for Architecture and the Pierpont Morgan Library, whose holdings of Piranesi drawings is the largest in the world. The works encompass the full scope of Piranesi's activities as architect, antiquarian, and designer. Works by Pannini, Fragonard, Robert Adam, Filippo Juvarra, Hubert Robert, Jean-Laurent Legeay, Charles de Wailly, and other eighteenth-century artists who drew inspiration from Roman art, architecture, and the surrounding countryside during this period are also included. In addition to texts by the three main authors, there are essays by John Wilton-Ely and Elisabeth Kieven, and entries by Henry Millon, Christine Challingsworth, Ruth S. Kraemer, and Jean de Cayeux.

31 Denton, Jeffrey HIERARCHIES AND ORDERS IN LATE MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE EUROPE
University of Toronto Press 1999 0802044832 / 9780802044839 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
This collection of essays examines different, but linked, aspects of the social organization of Europe from the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries. The essays broach two fundamental questions: how were social distinctions and divisions perceived and portrayed by the politically active, the writers, and the image-makers; and, bound up with the first question, according to what principles and methods should the modern enquirer perceive and portray the ordering of society during Western Europe's formative years? The contributors bring perspectives from a range of disciplines, from historical, sociological, and literary, to the art-historical and theoretical. Similarly, the contents are not limited to Northwestern Europe, but also address the Muslim Middle East, Dante's Italy, Renaissance Venice, and Adriatic Ragusa (Dubrovnik). An important contribution to the areas of late-medieval and early-modern European social history. ; 0.68 x 8.8 x 6.44 Inches; 256 pages

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

Tiny indent mark to first few pages else book is fine. Very light shelfwear to DJ. ; Born in Ferrara, Lilio Gregorio Giraldi (1479–1552) received an excellent classical education at the world-famous humanist schools of his native city. On his various travels in search of a patron, he visited Naples, frequenting the Academy there; Mirandola, where he entered the service of Gianfrancesco Pico; Milan, where he studied Greek under Demetrius Chalcondyles; and Rome, where he enjoyed the munificence of Pope Leo X. Following the sack of Rome in 1527, Giraldi eventually made his way back to Ferrara, where he spent the last years of his life. Giraldi was the author of many works on literary history, mythology, and antiquities. Among the most famous are his dialogues, translated here into English for the first time. Modeled on Cicero’s Brutus, the work discusses hundreds of contemporary neo-Latin and vernacular poets, giving a panoramic view of European poetry in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century from Great Britain to Greece, but concentrating above all on Italy. ; The I Tatti Renaissance Library 48; 400 pages
