Latest additions to the library

I've always loved Florence and the Renaissance.  After my recent trip to the city, I've decided to update my library detailing its history.

April Blood: Florence and the Plot Against the Medici, by Lauro Martines
The House of Medici: Its Rise and Fall, by Christopher Hibbert
The Borgias and Their Enemies 1431-1519, by Christopher Hibbert
Florence: The Golden Age, 1138-1737, by Gene Brucker

April Blood is a particularly compelling read.  Anyone who has played Assassin's Creed 2 should give April Blood a read, as it gives much of the background on the conspiracy against the Medici that forms much of the plot of the game.
