About this Item

Isabella D'Este, the Marchioness of Mantua (1474-1539) was one of the dazzling figures of the Italian Renaissance, playing the Renaissance game with an expertise that outflanked Popes and Emperors, using her brains, her charm, and her unswerving purpose to psych her opponents. This is the first biography of an important Renaissance figure. It is above all as a patron of art and letters that Isabella DEste will be remembered. In this respect she deserves a place with the most enlightened princes of the Renaissance, with Lorenzo de Medici and Lodovico Sforza. This book provides a thorough examination of DEstes life, and a detailed account of an intriguing woman of the Italian Renaissance, with illustrations and family trees. Illustrations include a portrait by Leonardo Da Vinci, and another by Titian of Isabella dressed in full regalia. This is a fine 2 volume set in the original gilt decorated blue cloth, edges uncut, with an engraved frontis portrait of Isabella Leonardo da Vinci in volume one, profusely illustrated with full page engravings, a fine set. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 009694
