    Just as eternal life is seeing God, longing for nothing greater, no longer longing, so I’m made happy, my lady, by seeing you in this brief and fragile life of mine. I never saw you as lovely as today, if my eyes truly reflect my heart: sweet in my thought the hour, and blessed, overcoming every other hope and wish. The Life of Petrarch was a follow-up to Wilkins' well-regarded Petrarch at Vaucluse (). With a brief Preface, initialed "E. H. W." The back matter includes a Note on Sources, an Index of Works of Petrarch, an Identifying List of Letters, and an Index. A handsome copy of an elegant book. Price: $

    Petrarch was born in Tuscany and grew up in the south of France. He lived his life in the service of the church, traveled widely, and during his lifetime was a revered, model man of letters. Petrarch's greatest gift to posterity was his Rime in vita e morta di Madonna Laura, the cycle of poems popularly known as his songbook. Mrs. Dobson's first book was her Life of Petrarch, which was based in part on de Sade's Mémoires pour la vie de Petrarch. According to Samuel Johnson, 'Mrs Dobson, the Directress of rational conversation, did not translate Petrarch; but epitomised a very bulky French life of Petrarch' (Letters of Samuel Johnson, ).
