THIS MONTH’S BOOK

The Bookseller of Florence, The story of manuscripts that illuminated the Renaissance

by Ross King

The Renaissance in Florence conjures images of beautiful frescoes and elegant buildings–the dazzling handiwork of the city’s skilled artists and architects. But equally important for the centuries to follow were geniuses of a different sort: Florence’s manuscript hunters, scribes, scholars, and booksellers, who blew the dust off a thousand years of history and, through the discovery and diffusion of ancient knowledge, imagined a new and enlightened world.
