    Description
    While his reputation rests largely on his exploits as a legendary lover, Giacomo Casanova was also a great deal more. Born of Venetian actors, he rose through society to keep company with scholars, cardinals, noblemen and kings, and wrote one of the raciest autobiographies of all time. He led a life packed with adventure - most famously the escape over the rooftops from prison in Venice - and with comic moments, such as the cabalistic frauds he played on an elderly French Marquise.John Masters' lively portrayal reveals Casanova's forthright honesty and tantalizing deceptions, his sexual escapades and feats of courage. This edition also includes a wealth of contemporary portraits, prints and specially commissioned photographs depicting scenes that have changed little since the eighteenth century.
