Excerpt

One should feel no compunction about putting together a book on a subject of which one is totally ignorant, for it has been done so often that indictment for it could hardly be taken seriously, yet with the best reason in the world for doing so-- to perpetuate the memory of a colleague and friend of twentyfive years -- I had my qualms until I thought of calling upon Professor Josephine Waters Bennett, of Hunter College, and Professor Vernon Hall, Jr., of Dartmouth College, to assist me. On their competence in the Renaissance field no one will take issue with me. I undertook the necessary badgering of overworked people to bring the physical substance together and the pleasure of reading proof of some very good writing, but theirs was the patience and skill that made this volume possible. No one would have appreciated what they have done more than Karl Holzknecht; in his stead, substituting intuition for penetrating knowledge, I wish to thank them on behalf of the university of which he was, and I am, a representative.

I also acknowledge my gratitude for the help given me on my memorial essay by Eleanore Holzknecht Dreibelbeis, Mary E. Burton, Albert C. Baugh, Paul A. Brown, and others who prefer anonymity. All concerned in this volume, and especially the impressario, are indebted to Gladys L. Cargill, who prepared the Index.
