Note 013
From Chapter 70 of the Decline & Fall

The whole process of Petrarch's coronation is accurately described by the abbé de Sade (tom. i. p. 425-435, tom. ii. p. 1-6, notes, p. 1-13), from his own writings, and the Roman diary of Ludovico, Monaldeschi, without mixing in this authentic narrative the more recent fables of Sannuccio Delbene.
