Frontispiece, xv, 355, 1 leaf; illus. Original cloth. Boards slightly bowed, else Very Good. Inscribed by author: 'October/1969/To Whiz and Casie/with love,/Patsy L.' Uomini e Dottrine 13. Bernardo Giustiniani (1408–1489), the 'son of Leonardo, was a pupil of Guarino and of George of Trebizond, and entered the Venetian senate at an early age. He served on several important diplomatic missions both to France and Rome, and about 1485 became one of the Council of Ten. His orations and letters were published in 1492; but his title to any measure of fame he possesses rests upon his history of Venice, De origine urbis Venetiarum rebusque ab ipsa gestis historia (1492), which was translated into Italian by Domenichi in 1545, and which at the time of its appearance was undoubtedly the best work upon the subject of which it treated. It is to be found in vol. 1 of the Thesaurus of Graevius' (Wikipedia). Bookseller Inventory #
