Book Description:

This book studies, and compares, two sixteenth-century libraries. Jean Grolier's was a bibliophilic 'cabinet' of fine books. Hurtado de Mendoza's was a much larger and more scholarly collection; a full Catalogue is provided for the first time. Books commisioned by Jean Grolier--'the Prince of Bibliophiles' - have long been famous. Hurtado de Mendoza was a poet and historian, a Greek scholar and Arabist. He set out to form for Spain a collection of Greek manuscripts to rival that being formed for France by Francis I's agents.

Review:

"It is the well-written and graceful kind of work we have come to expect from the author, replete with scholarship, good humor, and insight." Professional Bibliographical Society of America
