"The Governor-General's and Charles Taylor Prize-winner, Ross King, paints a rich portrait of Renaissance Florence at the height of its splendour through the story of manuscript dealer and 'merchant of knowledge' Vespasiano da Bisticci, who, after entering the book trade at the age of 11, produced hundreds of exquisite manuscripts for Europe's most famous and powerful personalities just as the printing press was set to disrupt book-making forever." - Emily Donaldson, The Globe & Mail, May 1, 2021.
