Introduction and selection: Dr. Martin Davies (Former Head of Incunabula at the British Library)
This set represents the work of the cultural movement known as humanism as it was printed in the incunable period. It reflects "rediscovery" of classical texts and the wide-ranging contributions of Italians to their interpretation and to creative use of the classics, in commentaries and in original works of prose and poetry.
