The same book on Emperor Nero, but with a new cover and title

This book was written by Girolamo Cardano (1501-1577?). The original in Latin was first published in Basel as Neronis Encomium in 1562  by the printer Henric Petri. The first English edition was issued in 2012 as Nero. An Exemplary Life in Hong Kong by Inkstone Books, in a limited edition of 200 copies. The translation from Latin to English is due to Angelo Paratico.

A new trade edition was published in 2019 by Gingko Edizioni of Verona, Italy, and it is available in Amazon in format kindle and POD (Print on Demand). Here is the link:

It is the same book, with a few necessary amendments, and provided with a jollier title and cover,  as Girolamo Cardano  Emperor Nero: Son of Promise, Child of Hope.

This book has been quoted by Joshua Levine on the Smithsonian Magazine for his deep and extensive review of the book written by British historian John F. Drinkwater Nero. Emperor and Court Cambridge University Press, 2019.
