The Civilization of Renaissance in Italy


 

Classic 19th century history book.According to Wikipedia: 'Carl Jacob Christoph Burckhardt (May 25, 1818, Basel, Switzerland - August 8, 1897, Basel) was a historian of art and culture, and an influential figure in the historiography of each field. He is known as one of the major progenitors of cultural history, albeit in a form very different from how cultural history is conceived and studied in academia today. Siegfried Giedion described Burckhardt's achievement in the following terms: 'The great discoverer of the age of the Renaissance, he first showed how a period should be treated in its entirety, with regard not only for its painting, sculpture and architecture, but for the social institutions of its daily life as well.'Burckhardt's best known work is The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy (1860).
