"...offers a comprehensive bibliography on Early Modern Italian topics (1635-1800) of works published in English and French.

It was a crucial period in the formation of Italian political traditions and the era in which enduring traits of Italian society took hold...This bibliography is designed to enable both students and researchers of Italian and European history, art history, music, literature, philosophy, religion and science to have the entire range of scholarship over the past 150 years at their fingertips."
