The history of Italy by Francesco Guicciardini( )
44 editions published between 1579 and 1618 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: In 1537 Francesco Guicciardini, adviser and confidant to three popes, governor of several central Italian states, ambassador, administrator, military captain-and persona non grata with the ruling Medici after the siege of Florence-retired to his villa to write a history of his times. His Storia d'Italia became the classic history of Italy-both a brilliant portrayal of the Renaissance and a penetrating vision into the tragedy and comedy of human history in general. Sidney Alexander's readable translation and abridgment of Guicciardini's four-volume work earned the prestigious 1970 P.E.N. Club translation award. His perceptive introduction and notes add much to the understanding of Guicciardini's masterpiece. This is a translation of the history of Italy by the 16th century diplomat, advisor to heads of state, and military leader Guicciardini
