The Courts of the Italian Renaissance

£9.99

Product description

This comprehensive study of the courts of Renaissance Italy explores every aspect of their diversity and magnificence, from Naples in the south to Monferrato in the north, from the oriental-like splendours presided over by the Swabian emperor Frederick II to the Baroque glories of the Counter-Reformation in Florence. The book is in near-fine condition with black boards and white titles; a letter "P" has been stamped on the lower text block edge. The jacket has some light surface marks and creasing to edges; closed tear approx. 2.5 cm at the top of the spine and a crease and tear to the top left rear corner where a torn piece of the edge has been sellotaped back in place. Lavishly illustrated in colour and b/w, this book vividly evokes the past and is an essential guide for the reader wishing to learn more about one of the most fascinating periods of Italian history.
