Age of the Despots, 644 pp with appendices and index ; Revival of Learning, 549 pp with index ; Italian Literature, Vol. I, 561 with appendices ; Vol. II, 643 pp with appendices, index and translations in verse by author. These four volumes belonged to Charles Augustus Stoddard, a 19th-century travel writer and poet. Some of the chapters in the Despots are : The Spirit of the Renaissance ; Italian History ; The Republics ; The Florentine Historian. This volume was meant to explain the social and political conditions of Italy. Revival of Learning focuses on the Men of the Renaissance ; the periods of humanism ; Latin poetry. This volume was to relate the exploration of the classical past which those conditions necessitated, and which determined the intellectual activity of the Italians. The two volumes on Italian Literature examine Italian literary masters including Dante, Boccaccio, Machiavelli. N° de ref. de la librería 71634
