Good (some cover wear). No Jacket. 449pp. One of the better and maybe more accurate portraits of this prince of the church, ruffian, soldier and art patron. Black cloth cover is worn at top and bottom of the spine/backstrip and on the corners (board exposed). (Loc G135/1)
I enjoyed the biography a great deal although it may not fun for every one.It was written many years ago and the language sound Victorian.It adds alot of personal asides (that Cesare and his sister Lucrezia were not the demons previously portrayed.) I rather like the asides and the author's opinions and the historical explanations follow smoothly.I would recommend this to people who are not afraid to read old-time language
