Short biography
William Roscoe (1753-1831), was an English historian and miscellaneous writer, perhaps best known today as an early abolitionist, and for his poem for children the Butterfly's Ball. Meanwhile he had pursued his Italian studies, and had carried out research, which resulted in his Life of Lorenzo de' Medici, which appeared in 1796, and gained him a reputation among contemporary historians.
