In addition to Huizinga’s brilliant analysis, this classic biography includes 32 illustrations and letters drawn from Erasmus’s vast correspondence with the greatest men of his era—those who would catapult Europe into the modern age. “A wise and critical biography...It is fitting that one of the greatest Dutch scholars of the twentieth century should interpret for us the greatest Dutch scholar of the sixteenth.”—New York Times.
