Ofrecemos el volumen nº 284 de la serie BRILL’S STUDIES IN INTELLECTUAL HISTORY. Como siempre, podemos ofrecer y enviar el resto de volúmenes publicados.

Por primera, podemos encontrar este estudio completo de De Nola (Venecia, 1514), una obra en latín completamente infravalorada, escrita por el humanista y médico Ambrogio Leone.

Adornada por cuatro grabados pioneros hechos con la ayuda del artista veneciano Girolamo Mocetto, De Nola es un texto impresionantemente rico y multifacético, que contiene un antiguo estudio de la ciudad de Nola, en el reino de Nápoles.

Describe las antigüedades, inscripciones, edificios y también los aspectos sociales y religiosos de la ciudad, una visión muy interesante del sur de Italia en la era renancentista.
