But as this book of letters reveals, there was real substance, and real faces, to both of them. Borgia, a child bride who was ruthlessly exploited for political advantage by three husbands, proved to be a girl of surprising resilence and cunning, anything but a monster.
Pietro Bembo, the learned and surpassingly gentle scholar, was the perfect product of the Renaissance. The covert love affair they conducted over a period of sixteen years under the nose of Borgia's ruthless brother, Cesare, was as dangerous as it was impassioned, and their letters, which provide a unique record of life during the Italian Renaissance, are a testament both to a relationship of rare beauty and to a feudal society of strict boundaries, dark dynastic drives, boundless political ambition, and extraordinary gallantry. Monotype Bembo, and illustrated with the charming and delicate wood engravings of Richard Shirley Smith, this elegant paperback will be a memorable gift for modern lovers.

The humanist teachers who dominated the published corpus of Renaissance pedagogical texts more or less ignored vernacular education. Vernacular schools did exist, and we know that children would have brought their own vernacular texts to school with them, the present grammar being one such example. But these were not students destined for humanistic fame. We locate only one copy of this edition in North America Newberry , and no earlier editions in commerce in the last decade.
