LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Secker & Warburg, publishers, London - first edition, 1967. hardcover, 5½" x 8¾", with dust jacket. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. In this incisive and absorbing study of Renaissance culture, Professor Mazzeo concentrates on the work of four crucial figures - Machiavelli, Castiglione, Bacon and Hobbes - to develop a picture of the great themes in the literature and thought of the period. To clarify what in the Renaissance was of new and importance, the author has organised the complexities of the movement around a core of central ideas and lasting influences as exemplified in these four major writers. He also discusses Galileo, Descartes and Montaigne.
