Summary
First ed. of a collection of biographies of prominent Venetians, loosely grouped into nine sections by themes such as various virtues, moments of civic glory, and municipal character: women, both learned and loose; justice, duty, honor, poverty, martial achievement, military strategy, miracles, and legal customs. The didactic purpose of the book is emphasized by its classified arrangement and its subject (rather than personal name) index
