The scarith of Scornello : a tale of Renaissance forgery by Ingrid D Rowland( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As recounted here by Ingrid D. Rowland, Curzio preyed on the Italian fixation with ancestry to forge an array of ancient Latin and Etruscan documents. For authenticity's sake, he stashed the counterfeit treasure in scarith (capsules made of hair and mud) near Scornello. To the seventeenth-century Tuscans who were so eager to establish proof of their heritage and history, the scarith symbolized a link to the prestigious culture of their past. But because none of these proud Italians could actually read the ancient Etruscan language, they couldn't know for certain that the documents were frauds

John Payne Collier (1789-1883), one of the most controversial figures in the history of literary scholarship, pursued a double career. A prolific and highly influential writer on the drama, poetry, and popular prose of Shakespeare's age, Collier was at the same time the promulgator of a great body of forgeries and false evidence, seriously affecting the text and biography of Shakespeare and many others. This monumental two-volume work for the first time addresses the whole of Collier's activity, systematically sorting out his genuine achievements from his impostures

The epicure's almanack : eating and drinking in Regency London : the original 1815 guidebook by Ralph Rylance( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The epicure's almanack of 1815 was the first British 'good food guide, ' designed to point the reader toward places in and around London where he might 'dine well, and to the best advantage, ' whatever his budget. Working alone and on foot, Ralph Rylance visited and described some 650 establishments, ranging from City chop houses, ancient coaching inns, and London's first Indian restaurant, to humble tripe shops and oyster rooms, dockyard taverns, and village pubs. He concluded his tour with a comprehensive account of London's markets, a catalogue of merchants stocking everything from anchovy sauce to kitchen ranges, and an 'alimentary calendar' directing both cooks and diners to the best seasonal ingredients. Annual updates were promised, but never appeared: a publishing failure in its own time, the Almanack was neither continued nor reprinted, and two years after publication all unsold copies were destroyed. The present edition is designed to make this engaging and informative text more readily available, and to provide a commentary on the book and its author, and on the wider topic of eating and drinking in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The extensive notes to the main text include brief histories of the principal establishments mentioned, whenever possible making use of contemporary notices and advertisements, and details from a contemporary map of London allow the reader to follow in Ralph Rylance's footsteps as he explores the city's streets"--Front flap of book jkt

On the donation of Constantine by Lorenzo Valla( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in Latin and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lorenzo Valla (1407-1457) was the most important theorist of the humanist movement. He wrote a major work on Latin style, On Elegance in the Latin Language, which became a battle-standard in the struggle for the reform of Latin across Europe, and Dialectical Disputations, a wide-ranging attack on scholastic logic. His most famous work is On the Donation of Constantine, an oration in which Valla uses new philological methods to attack the authenticity of the most important document justifying the papacy's claims to temporal rule. It appears here in a new translation with introduction and notes by G.W. Bowersock, based on the critical text of Wolfram Setz (1976). This volume also includes a text and translation of the Constitutum Constantini, commonly known as the Donation of Constantine."--Jacket
