The extensive introduction describes and relates the provenance of the 1550 edition housed at the National Sporting Library & Museum in Middleburg, Virginia, from which this translation was prepared; the intro also gives a chronology of Italian editions and translations into other languages, and discusses the methodology used for this translation. The work itself is a detailed exposition on dressage theory and practice. Published by the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS). Annotation ©2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
