My Library

sexy-library.jpgI visited the Annex BMV to build up my scholar library. I scored with two books, one from The other voice in Early Modern Europe series and the other Giovanni and Lusanna: Love and marriage in Renaissance Florence.  The latter, authored by Gene Brucker, has already provided me with some insight as to how I will proceed in my studies.

Brucker notes in his introduction that what his has written is a microhistory which are “characterized, first, by an emphasis on particular individuals and events, not on groups or structures; and second, by a predilection for study of people and milieux hitherto unknown and unexplored.”

In other words, not the same old same old.  Works for me.

Looks like I will have brush up on my Latin.
