This edition of the I Tatti Renaissance library is laudable, for it has for the first time presented the complete English translation of Manetti, allowing readers not only to acquaint themselves with the text but also somehow to denude the author's persona and his treatise of any unnecessary mystery.--Manuscripta Orientalia (06/01/2018)
Renders accessible a valuable document that testifies to the ambition and the breadth of learning of a major Florentine humanist.--Renaissance Quarterly (12/01/2017)
A key document in the field of early modern translation theory.--Seventeenth-Century News (12/01/2016)
