The art of memory by Frances A Yates( Book )
153 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 2,339 libraries worldwide
Overview: One of Modern Library's 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Twentieth Century. In this classic study of how people learned to retain vast stores of knowledge before the invention of the printed page, Frances A. Yates traces the art of memory from its treatment by Greek orators, through its Gothic transformations in the Middle Ages, to the occult forms it took in the Renaissance, and finally to its use in the seventeenth century. This book, the first to relate the art of memory to the history of culture as a whole, was revolutionary when it first appeared and continues to mesmerize readers with its lucid and revelatory insights

The Rosicrucian enlightenment by Frances A Yates( Book )
108 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,446 libraries worldwide
"In the early seventeenth century two manifestos were published which proclaimed, in terms of magic, alchemy and the Cabala, the dawn of a new age of increased knowledge and power over nature. These anonymous documents (reproduced in the appendix to this work) were written on behalf of 'the Fraternity of the Rose Cross'. Ever since, this mysterious movement has been the subject of endless fascination, speculation and intrigue. In this book, Frances Yates reveals the truth about the 'Rosicrucian Enlightenment' and its impact on Europe's political and cultural history. She transforms, for instance, our understanding of the origins of modern science by placing in the context of an occult tradition key figures such as Descartes, Bacon, Kepler and Newton."--Google Books (Routledge new 2002 ed.)

L'arte della memoria by Frances A Yates( Book )
17 editions published between 1972 and 2007 in Italian and held by 67 libraries worldwide
Le ricerche di Frances A. Yates - all'interno del prestigioso gruppo di studiosi raccolto a Londra presso il Warburg Institute - hanno mostrato spiccato interesse per gli aspetti magici e occultistici della cultura tardo cinquecentesca, illuminando ambienti e personaggi che si muovono tra forme di cultura di chiara derivazione classica e le innovazioni della rivoluzione scientifica del secolo XVII. L'arte della memoria offre un sicuro tramite per individuare alcuni passaggi essenziali della storia intellettuale del Rinascimento. <<Quello che mi ha soprattutto interessato - scrive l'autrice - è come la storia della memoria riesca ad abbracciare la storia della cultura nel suo complesso. Le barriere tra le diverse discipline, tra scienze naturali e scienze umane, tra arte e letteratura, tra filosofia e religione, spariscono nella storia della memoria>>
