Pp. [xxxvii]  and 451; Quarto decorated buckram, Fine, in slip case. A history book like no other prior, Burckhardt, in the summary of Grafton, “located the core of modernity not in the rise of the bourgeoisie or the modern state but in a new sense of the individual self that cam into being in Italy in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, and he made individualism and the new ways of life and thought that it generated, the subjects of his book.”
