Early Modern Italy bibliography

Scholars of Italy from 1500-1800 will be pleased to know that Gregory Hanlon has published online his most recent updated edition of his bibliography, Early Modern Italy 1500-1800, A Comprehensive Bibliography. With over 15,000 entries in both English and French, as well as a thoughtful bibliographical essay, this is a very valuable resource for researchers in Italian studies, and for those interested in Italy's interactions with other countries.

From the author's announcement:

"Dear friends and colleagues,

I have decided to place the 10th edition of my, "Early Modern Italy 1550-1800: a comprehensive bibliography of titles in English and French" on a commercial-free link to my departmental webpage. This latest version, which totals just over 15,000 titles, embraces every aspect of Italian history, including art and architecture, literature, music and science. It also includes titles relating Italy to other countries. The bibliography begins with an overview of historiographical trends past and present over the last century and more. I hope you will alert your students and your colleagues, and indeed anyone who might find it useful, to the existence of this work.

This is an ongoing project, never finished. I would be very grateful if you would notify me of any errors or omissions so that I might rectify those as soon as possible.

For the link, access is available through the following sites: or by visiting my webpage

Gregory Hanlon"
