Most widely held works by Virginia Brown
Famous women by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous Women, which Boccaccio continued to revise and expand until the end of his life, became one of the most popular works in the last age of the manuscript book, and had a signal influence on many literary works, including Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and Castiglione's Courtier. This edition presents the first English translation based on the autograph manuscript of the Latin."--Jacket
Momus by Leon Battista Alberti( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Momus is the most ambitious literary creation of Leon Battista Alberti, the famous humanist-scientist-artist and "universal man" of the Italian Renaissance. In this dark comedy, written around 1450, Alberti charts the lively fortunes of his anti-hero Momus, the unscrupulous and vitriolic god of criticism. Alberti deploys his singular erudition and wit to satirize subjects from court life and politics to philosophy and intellectuals, from grand architectural designs to human and divine folly. This edition provides a new Latin text, the first to be based on the two earliest manuscripts, both corrected by Alberti himself, and includes the first full translation into English."--Jacket
