The I Tatti Renaissance Library is the only series that makes available to a broad readership the major literary,
historical, philosophical, and scientific works of the Italian Renaissance written in Latin. Each volume provides
a reliable Latin text together with an accurate, readable English translation on facing pages, accompanied by an
editor’s introduction, notes on the text, brief bibliography, and index. Presenting current scholarship in an
attractive and convenient format, The I Tatti Renaissance Library aims to make this essential literature
accessible to students and scholars in a wide variety of disciplines as well as to general readers.

“The most ambitious and innovative writings of the Italian Renaissance, in prose and verse, in fields
that range from comedy to metaphysics and beyond—works that for centuries only scholars have
been able to read—have suddenly become accessible to readers who know only English…
The I Tatti series is already beginning to transform the study and teaching of Renaissance culture.”
—ANTHONY GRAFTON
