Cellini's autobiography and Online book resources


#1

Hi All,

I came across some interesting about free online books,
thousands of them, almost none on jewellery, but a couple of related
ones. I am sure there are more if you dig.

Here is Cellini’s autobiography (the man was really kind of an
immoral creep, but he was a pretty good goldsmith and entrepreneur).
