Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius by Niccolo Machiavelli: Citizen and Secretary of Florence.
Translated from the Italian by Ninian Hill Thomson, M.A. (1883)
To Professor Pasquale Villari; Dear Professor Villari, Permit me to inscribe your name on a translation of Machiavelli's Discourses which I had your encouragement to undertake, and in which I have done my best to preserve something of the flavour of the original. Yours faithfully, Ninian Hill Thomson. Florence, May 17, 1883.
