Abstract:
Holograph letters on paper, written and signed in a Humanist cursive. Addressed to Raffaelo de' Medici, nuncio to the Imperial court at Antwerp, Ghinucci's letters contain detailed descriptions of his arrival at the court of Henry VIII; the receptions of foreign ambassadors and the nature of their business; and Ghinucci's impressions of Henry VIII's own advisors and diplomats. He comments particularly on Cardinal Wolsey and Cuthbert Tunstall, who was being dispatched to Antwerp as ambassador.
Other subjects include the illness of Giovanni Matteo; the business activities in London of Florentine merchants; and Ghinucci's strong dislike of the cold English weather during his first visit to the country.
All signed: "Hir. Audit[or]."
