Vintage book, 1957. Highly interesting memoir of Gaetano Casanova, a man who lived a most extraordinary life. This man who was a gambler, charlatan, adulterer and seducer of women was also, strangely enough a student of the classics, a philosopher, mathematician, historian, dramatist and poet! His famous Memoirs is a remarkably witty chronicle of 18th century life. Translated and condensed from the original French by Lowell Bair.
