'This is a monumental reference work, an essential acquisition for all institutions seriously committed to cultural history. It displaces all previous bibliographies of Renaissance rhetoric, and opens up many avenues of research into this discipline.' Brian Vickers, London University, UK and Fellow of the British Academy '... this is really a mine of information, all well organized and elegantly presented... the value of the present compilation within the whole area of Renaissance studies, intellectual and literary history, and history of the book, is considerable. It continues and crystallises a long tradition of scholarly work and [...] will become a standard reference and vade mecum for a wide community of present and future scholars.' Reference Review 'All in all, this is a tremendously useful bibliography for scholars interested in renaissance humanism and writing...' Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America '... this is a first-rate scholarly resource, one that should be in the library of every neo-latinist with a serious interest in rhetoric.'
