First words
We understand, Ubertino, that Francesco the elder, your grandfather — whose many magnificent deeds are on record just as his many wise sayings are remembered everywhere — used to say there were three ways that parents could easily serve the interests of their children, and were with good reason obliged to do so.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 067400759X, Hardcover)

The cycle of disciplines now known as the humanities emerged in their modern form during the Italian Renaissance as the result of an educational movement begun by humanist teachers, writers, and scholars of the early Quattrocento. The movement argued for the usefulness of classical literature as an instrument for training young men and women, not only in the arts of language and eloquence, but also in civic virtue and practical wisdom. This volume contains four of the most important theoretical statements that emerged from the early humanists' efforts to reform medieval education.

The four texts are Pier Paolo Vergerio, "The Character and Studies Befitting a Free-Born Youth"; Leonardo Bruni, "The Study of Literature"; Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini (Pope Pius II), "The Education of Boys"; and Battista Guarino, "A Program of Teaching and Learning". The Vergerio and Guarino texts appear in English for the first time.
