This is an auction for THE CIVILISATION OF THE RENAISSANCE IN ITALY by Jacob Burckhardt.

This is a Folio Society hardback in its original slipcase.

From Wikipedia:

"Carl Jacob Christoph Burckhardt (1818–1897) 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. 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). It is divided into six parts:

* Part One: The State as a Work of Art

* Part Two: The Development of the Individual

* Part Three: The Revival of Antiquity

* Part Four: The Discovery of the World and of Man

* Part Five: Society and Festivals

* Part Six: Morality and Religion
