Through a fortunate coincidence they have been recently discovered, and the present work is the result of this find. Contained herein, in fact, is the unedited correspondence - or presented as such - exchanged between Desiderius Erasmus, Thomas More, and Niccolo Machiavelli in 1517-1518. To these letters are added texts which serve, as it were, as annexes of the 'Prince' and of the 'Utopia'." From the publisher.
