  • Appendix II. Marrasio's masque in Ferrara (1433).
Giovanni Marrasio (d. 1452), a humanist poet from Noto in Sicily, spent the major part of his poetic career in Siena and Ferrara before returning to Palermo in the role of a medical doctor serving the University of Palermo. In Siena, Naples, and Palermo he hovered on the edge of the courts of the Este and of Alfonso the Magnanimous of Aragon without ever winning the title of court poet he coveted.Marrasio was esteemed in the Renaissance as the first to revive the ancient Latin elegy, and his Angelinetum, or Angelina s Garden, as well as his later poems ( Carmina Varia) explore that genre in all its variety, from love poetry, to a description of a court masque, to political panegyric, to poetic exchanges with famous humanists of the day such as Leonardo Bruni, Maffeo Vegio, Antonio Panormita, and Enea Silvio Piccolomini. This volume contains the first translation of Marrasio s works into any modern language.".

In Apocalyptic Cartography: Thematic Maps and the End of the World in a Fifteenth-Century Manuscript, Chet Van Duzer and Ilya Dines analyse Huntington Library HM 83, an unstudied manuscript produced in Lubeck, Germany. The manuscript contains a rich collection of world maps produced by an anonymous but strikingly original cartographer. These include one of the earliest programs of thematic maps, and a remarkable series of maps that illustrate the transformations that the world was supposed to undergo during the Apocalypse. The authors supply detailed discussion of the maps and transcriptions and translations of the Latin texts that explain the maps. Copies of the maps in a fifteenth-century manuscript in Wolfenbuttel prove that this unusual work did circulate.

"Les Belles figures et drolleries de la Ligue réunies par Pierre de L'Estoile illustrent les grands événements qui ont secoué la fin du règne d'Henri III jusqu'à la reconquête. de Paris par son successeur. Elles constituent un témoignage exceptionnel sur l'histoire des Seize et les stratégies de propagande médiatisées par des gravures d'actualité d'une rare violence pamphlétaire. Les notes personnelles de l'auteur ainsi que ses procédés de collage destinent le corpus iconographique à être le témoignage de la barbarie ligueuse et font de l'oeuvre un "théâtre de la cruauté", dont les images sanglantes entrent en résonance avec celles du Journal. Conforme au texte de l'exemplaire de la Bibliothèque nationale, la présente édition restitue pour la première fois l'intégralité des estampes, chacune d'elles étant située par rapport à l'actualité, interprétée en fonction du public visé et analysée sous l'angle de leurs intertextes (pamphlets, placards, libelles...). Le motif du "monstre" structure la marqueterie des Belles figures pour les désigner comme tragédie de la rébellion à travers une succession de tableaux hallucinants, dont L'Estoile fut le collectionneur lucide."--Page 4 of cover.
