Praise for the 1965 edition "The publication of this handsome edition of all Machiavelli's major works, together with many of the secondary ones either previously un-translated or difficult to obtain, is an event of major importance for English-speaking scholars in the humanities and social sciences; and students of the history of political thought owe a particular debt of gratitude to Professor Gilbert. . . Political theorists already familiar with Professor Gilbert's Prince and selections from other works and the letters will of course be especially grateful to him for his rendering of the Discourses, which is by far the best available. But in addition to this, they will rejoice to find under one roof other works, some of which are difficult or impossible to obtain. Allan Gilbert is unquestionably the most accurate and reliable translator of Machiavelli into English; the publication of this edition is an altogether happy occasion."Dante Germino The Journal of Politics "A most remarkable achievement"Felix Gilbert Renaissance Quarterly
