Italian Manuscripts

The collection holds a number of interesting Italian manuscripts from the late fifteenth to the early nineteenth centuries. These include literary, historical and theological works and some archival material (primarily of the sixteenth century). For example, there is a late seventeenth century copy of Niccolo Machiavelli's Il principe; two eighteenth century translations of Lucretius' De rerum natura (Delle nature delle cose), one of which is by Alessandro Marchetti; a copy of "Esercizi spirituali", 1571, attributed to the Jesuit general Claudio Aquaviva; and a series of legal documents, 1541-1583, concerning the Capacci family of Siena.
