His correspondence gives us an intimate glimpse of the revival of classical literature from the pen of a man at the very center of the Renaissance movement.

This volume illuminates his close friendship with the philosopher Pico della Mirandola and includes much of the correspondence concerning the composition and reception of his Miscellanies, a revolutionary work of philology.

It also includes his famous and moving letter on the death of Lorenzo de Medici. This volume contains the first modern edition of the Latin text and the first translation of the letters into English.
