THERE is no need to explain the origin of this
attempt to write the history of Verona, the inherent
fascination of the subject speaks for itself. But
I cannot let this volume appear without expressing my
sincere thanks to all who have assisted me during its
preparation. First and foremost I desire to thank the
cavaliere Gaetano da Re, of the Biblioteca Comunale at
Verona, who, during my two visits to Verona, in i904
and 1906, placed at my disposal the treasures both of
the library and of his learning with the most generous
kindness, and since then has settled more than one
difficult point. From the other officials of this library,
and those of the other libraries I visited, the Biblioleca
Capitolare at Verona, the Biblioteca Marciana and the
Archivio di Stato (in the Frari) at Venice, and the
Archivio Gonzaga at Mantua, I met with the same unfailing
and courteous assistance. Among modern works
I have found Count Carlo Cipolla's writings on Verona
and his scholarly edition of the early Veronese chroniclers
invaluable, while J. M. Gittermann's Ezzelino III.
da Romano, E. Salzer's Ueber die Anfange der Signorie
in Oberitalien, and H. Spangenberg's Cangrande I. are
all of the first importance for various periods of Veronese
history. My thanks are also due to Miss Croom-Brown,
who constructed the three maps, the result of much careful
research, and to my cousin, Mr. Alfred Jukes Allen,
Here’s what’s next.
