"Gilbert's remains the best aggregate translation of Michelangelo's poetry into English."
—Saturday Review

The letters have a number of references to Michelangelo's artistry and help establish his timeline.

An attractive, tight, clean, bright copy in a NF dust jacket (unclipped) with slight edgewear, a few nicks, and traces of soil (mainly evident on the rear panel of the dj).
