First Edition, First Printing. ----------- Humanists Alberti, Pico, Budé, and Kepler, all major figures of their time and now major figures in intellectual history, are examined in the light of their distinctive ways of reading.----- Investigating a period of two centuries, Grafton vividly portrays the ways in which book/scholar interactions and the established traditions that were reflected in these interactions were part of and helped shape the subjects' Humanistic philosophy.----- The book also indicates how these traditions have implications for the modern literary scene.
