Acknowledgment. Since my text for this translation was the Opera Omnia Basel edition of 1576, notoriously full of errors, I have had to do much consulting in other editions, for which I am emphatically grateful to the staffs of the University of Connecticut Library and the Yale University Medical Library. I must thank Professor Tom Moore, of Southern Methodist University, not only for making available to me the manuscript of his own forthcoming book on Ficino, but for his many suggestions for improving the present book. Jay Livernois bestowed his vast Solar gifts on this project in many hours of reading and discussion of the manuscript, and the translation would have been abandoned many times had it not been for his encouragement and help.

The Gods alone know how long and winding that garden path has been since those palmy days in an ltalia pia calma, but if the present work can be taken in any way as tribute to this great scholar, it is I who am honored. ...
