April Blood: Florence and the Plot Against the Medici - Lauro MartinesPimlico, 2004, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good+.
First in this edition. From the cover: “In April 1478, a plot to murder the two heads of the powerful Medici family dramatically miscarried. The younger of the two brothers was killed, but Lorenzo the Magnificent, the brilliant poet and connoisseur, escaped. A blood- bath followed and all of Italy was at once affected as it emerged that the Pope, the King of Naples and the Duke of Urbino were implicated in the plot, and that binding treaties required Milan and Venice to assist Florence.”
