Not What I Expected
I was expecting something in a more philosophical vein. I was not expecting a biography of Leon Battista Albert, who I was not aware of people until now. It wasn't bad. I found it interesting.
The work is obviously public domain, but when I search for the title this is the only work that comes up. After a bit of digging I discovered that Albert's life was described in Giorgio Vasari's Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects.
That work is a ten volume set, but I was able to quickly find the chapter in the Librivox edition. This is not it. Yet the language is old and it appears to have been written by someone who knew him or was intimate with the details of his life.
Anyway, it was a cheap purchase and I learned something. Apparently this is the man who gave rise to the term "A renaissance man".
