List of Works
The Courtier (original Italian title Il Cortegiano) was originally written by Baldassare Castiglione. Sir Thomas Hoby first translated the work into English. However, it was attributed to Hoby in the list of classics I found it in (probably due to the vast popularity of his translation).
