Excerpt: ... COUNT LORENZO MAGALOTTI. This Florentine nobleman, born in the earlier part of the seventeenth century, was distinguished for his literary taste, and the extent and variety of his acquirements.

From an account of these, as given by the distinguished prelate Moreni, who still survives to reflect credit upon the classic soil of Tuscany, the antiquities of which he has so ably illustrated, we learn that they are of a very diversified subject and character, being found to comprehend essays upon different branches of natural history, read in the Royal Academy del Cimento, under the especial patronage of Prince Leopold, of Tuscany, and published at Florence in the year 1666, besides an Eulogy upon the Cardinal Leopold de' Medici; a Description of the Villa of Lonchio, addressed to the Marquess Strozzi; some terzine stanzas, in the style of Dante, upon the death of Orazio Rucellai; and a Life of the celebrated traveller Francesco Carletti. From the specimen of the Count's novel, here presented to the English reader, it will easily be perceived, that he claims a high rank among the fictitious writers of the seventeenth century; almost wholly opposed in style and character to those of a preceding era. Evident traces of modern manners and sentiments begin to display the changes that had taken place in society, with its increasing cultivation and refinement. COUNT LORENZO MAGALOTTI. NOVELLA I.
