Note 085
From Chapter 66 of the Decline & Fall

Of those writers who professedly treat of the restoration of the Greek learning in Italy, the two principal are Hodius, Dr. Humphrey Hody (de Graecis Illustribus, Linguae Graecae Literarumque humaniorum Instauratoribus; Londini, 1742, in large octavo), and Tiraboschi (Istoria della Letteratura Italiana, tom. v. p. 364 - 377, tom. vii. p. 112 - 143). The Oxford professor is a laborious scholar, but the librarian of Modema enjoys the superiority of a modern and national historian.
