Opis: The Guilds of Florence (Classic Reprint) - Staley Edgcumbe

Excerpt from The Guilds of Florence
"Firenze, la Bellissima e Famosissima Figlia di Roma" - was no mere metaphor of Dante, but a very true title of the First of Modern States.
The cumulative energies of the Florentines had their focus in the corporate life of the Trade-Associations, and in no other Community was the Guild-system so thoroughly developed as it was in Florence.
A complete and connected History of the Guilds has never been compiled. The present work is put forth, perhaps rather tentatively than exhaustively, to supply the omission.
The subject is a large one, and the founts of information are many and various. I have tasted at many springs and drunk from many wells - and my subject-matter has been drawn from the following sources: - (1) Manuscripts - Twelfth to Sixteenth centuries; (2) Printed matter - Books and Periodicals; (3) Letters from Authorities and Friends; (4) Personal Knowledge of Florence and the Florentines.
In the study of Manuscripts I have entered largely into the labours of such experts as Emily Baxter, Guido Biagi, R. Davidssohn, Lewis Einstein, F. T. Perrens, J. A. Symonds, and Pasquale Villari, and I have freely used their readings.
This I have done because of initial difficulties of time and emolument for original research. The early Constitutions and Statutes of many of the Guilds were written in an almost insolvable mixture of abbreviated Latin and vernacular Tuscan - the deciphering of which would easily consume any man's natural life-time. When I sought for some student to undertake, even a superficial survey, I was met with the crushing but practical reply - "the game is not worth the candle!"
