|Johannes Boemus, |
I costumi le leggi et l'usanze di tutte le genti.
Venice: Dominico & Alvise Giglio, 1566.
|First published in Latin in 1520, Boemus's popular little tome was an attempt to collect in one place the rituals, practices, and customs of peoples ancient and modern. It was a book which inevitably grew as more information became available as a result of discoveries abroad.|
