Poggio's Noble Dialogue: Textual Variations in Three Early Printed Editions

The full text article is not available.

Poggio Bracciolini's dialogue De nobilitate (completed 1440) has been described as ‘nothing less than [an] open attack on the hierarchical scheme of political authority which prevailed in the Middle Ages’, but it is scarcely a polemical work, rather a discourse on ‘virtus’ seen as the source of nobility, happiness and reputation. This examination of the first three printed editions (1489, 1513, 1538) reviews their characteristics and attempts to clarify the principal difficulties posed by their variations.
