Leonardo da Vinci, Machiavelli, Cesare Borgia, Elizabeth I, Shakespeare, Juan de Herrera-figures great and small, famous and little known-all contributed to the outpouring of genius known as the Renaissance. This extensively illustrated 6-vol. set treats the full period of the Renaissance, from 1350 to 1650, encompassing Italy and the rest of Europe in the context of the broader world. Written for students and non-specialists, the Encyclopedia contains topical entries and biographies ranging from 250 to 7, 500 words -- 1, 200 alphabetically arranged articles altogether -- on culture, literature, philosophy, religion, economics, politics, science, and the arts, revealing how people both great and humble thought, what they believed, and how they lived.

These volumes have been extremely informative already. I am working on a book on early 16th century and my (university) library is fairly inadequate. So these volumes are extremely informative with regards to various subjects and persons, and they also open me to other publications which may be of use. I bought these volumes used, and at an extremely reduced price, which has added to the value even more.

This work is the acknowledged standard for a broad overview of the Renaissance. Encyclopedic in scope and filled with detail. Hundreds of maps and images.
