Format: Paperback
This book is doing something amazing in being able to fit in such a variety of different subjects about a "time period" that is quite vast and had a lot of local variations in its expressions. And it does it well in my opinion, having studied many in the subjects more in detail. This is a great introduction for anyone curious about the renaissance and it is filled with beautiful illustrations accompanying each chapter in an excellent way!

an absolutely amazing book that covers a number of interdisciplinary humanities areas, from history to the arts to science etc of the renaissance. the imagery is amazing, and although the book is enormous in terms of its size, it is really well structured, easy to follow, and engaging throughout. it reviews the renaissance from many different perspectives and provides an excellent contextual understanding of this exciting period. i loved the unusual chapters on the development of maps, on emerging collections of coins and books and other quirky parts of the book, which are normally not included in such a book

This is a lovely book and great value for the money. I had no problems with delivery and the book is in perfect condition. It's the sort of book that you just pick up and put down again, but never fails to delight and inform.
