Сторінка 107 - Few things in the way of small books upon great subjects, avowedly cheap and necessarily brief, have been hitherto so well done as these biographies of the Great Masters in painting." —Times.
Сторінка 58 - quali, in persona della Notte, rispose Michelagnolo così : Grato mi è il sonno , e più l'esser di sasso, Mentre che il danno e la vergogna dura , Non veder, non sentir, m' è gran ventura : Però non mi destar ; deh parla basso.

It is easy for a woman to go wrong who does these things. Nor is it to be said by any one, that thou wishest to ennoble thyself by marriage; for it is well known that we are as ancient and noble citizens of Florence as those of any other house. Recommend thyself to God, that he may aid thee.
