Description

Giovanni Garzoni (1419-1505) was one of those polymaths who abounded in fifteenth-century Bologna, and indeed all over humanist Europe. He was a physician in private practice in Bologna, respected enough to have been the family doctor to several prominent families, and physician to the Augustinian house in Bologna, and later to Pope Nicholas V. While lecturing in medicine at the university, he also had a reputation as a philosopher, rhetorician, teacher of literature and hagiographer. He was noted as an enthusiastic and perceptive Ciceronian, and indeed the present collection includes his little tract on the imitation of Cicero, De proprio Ciceronis imitandi studio. Though widely respected by his contemporaries, he was not a colourful figure and has largely been forgotten. In fact he had a rooted objection to publishing his writings, even though a number of his admirers copied several of his letters and circulated them in manuscript. There is no printed edition of his work before the eighteenth century, when there is a partial edition of some of his letters and other literary work. At this time Italian cities were publishing accounts their literary and artistic traditions, and when possible the works of their own authors, famous and obscure, to show what a rich literary tradition they had. And Bologna vied with the best of them. The present edition offers the reader a comprehensive introduction, the text of his letters, a series of useful notes, De proprio Ciceronis imitandi studio, a list of his correspondents, a bibliography and an Index nominum.
