The Justification of Florentine Foreign Policy Offered by Leonardo Bruni in His Public Letters.
(Nuovi Studi Storici, 47.) Rome: Palazzo Borromini, 1999. 186 pp. bibl. ISBN: n.a.
According to the preface of Griffith's book, there's been little analysis of the 1427-1444 foreign policy of Florentine chancellor Leonardo Bruni, despite the availability of documents in the form of public letters in the Florentine archives and the Biblioteca Nazionale. The situation was somewhat remedied by Paolo Viti in his 1992 work Leonardo Bruni e Firenze: studi sulle lettere pubbliche e private. Griffiths' eleven chapters follow Viti's work in sequence and subject matter. Latin documents -- Bruni's letters -- are supplied in chronological sequence at the end.
