"...Illustrated with numerous color images (many of them taken expressly for this publication), this volume provides a critical edition and annotated translation of Malvasia's lives of Francia and his disciples, among them prominently Costa. The integral transcription (for the first time) in this volume of Malvasia's preparatory notes (Scritti originali) to the lives of Francia, Costa, and Chiodarolo presents important material that could foster the study of Bolognese painting in the age of humanism under the rulership of the Bentivoglio."--Amazon.
