New Review for Edson’s Buondelmonti

Evelyn Edson’s edition and translation of Cristoforo Buondelmonti’s Description of the Aegean and Other Islands has received a fine review by Craig Kallendorf in the last number of Seventeenth-Century News/Neo-Latin News. “A lavish production… it does indeed meet the highest aesthetic standards, but it is also a work of scholarship, carefully prepared over a period of several years. In addition, it is a valuable reminder that Neo-Latin includes not only poetry and plays, but also less obvious genres like travel literature.” Please check this review out.
