Excerpt from The Chronicle of Dino CompagniThough Dino Compagni calls his work a Chronicle, it is not (like Giovanni Villanis, for example) a Chronicle in the sense in which the term is now used to express a particular kind of narrationMoreExcerpt from The Chronicle of Dino CompagniThough Dino Compagni calls his work a Chronicle, it is not (like Giovanni Villanis, for example) a Chronicle in the sense in which the term is now used to express a particular kind of narration distinguished from a history- the terms chronicle and history being in Dinos time interchangeable.

Dinos book is in form the history of a particular fact, namely, the division of the Guelf party in Florence into the White and the Black Guelfs, with its attendant circumstances, its causes, and its results: but under this form is unfolded at the same time the history of the steps by which the wealthy traders of Florence (jfropolani, popolani grassi, and collectively popolo grasso) organised in the greater guilds (see Appendix Ii.) acquired and retained the control of the machinery of government in the city and its outlying territory (contado), excluding (practically) from all participation therein on the one hand the Magnates (i.e.

the old feudal nobility, and other persons more recently ennobled by knighthood or by marriage), and on the other hand the smaller traders and the populace (popolo minuto).About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
