W. W. Norton & Company, New York & London, 2011. 356p, index, bibliography, notes & Illustrations. A Fine, unblemished copy in dustjacket.

Winner of the National Book Award. “A riveting tale of the great cultural “swerve” known as the Renaissance”, all set around the discovery by Poggio Bracciolini in 1417 of Lucretius’ ancient poem On the Nature of Things, and its subsequent circulation; a poem that would “shape the thought of Galileo and Freud, Darwin and Einstein, ands – in the hands of Thomas Jefferson – leave its trace on the Declaration of Independence.” Historical research and writing at its finest.
