The Life of Pico Della Mirandola was originally written in Latin by his nephew Giovanni Pico della Mirandola and translated into English by Thomas More in 1504. This Ex-Classics version is taken from an edition edited with intriduction and notes by J. M. Rigg, published by David Nutt in 1890. The spelling has been modernised.
