Having lived in cities including Vienna, Paris, Rome, London, Berlin, St. Petersburg and Madrid, Giacomo Casanova (1725–1796) could be described as the first cosmopolitan. On his tireless jaunts through eighteenth-century Europe, he not only encountered the beautiful and erotic but also powerful figures and artists of his time. Whether Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, Frederick the Great, Johann Joachim Winckelmann, or (probably) even Mozart, Casanova knew them all. This large-format illustrated volume follows in the footsteps of the well-known libertine and couples passages from his memoirs, remarkable in so many aspects, with magnificent early photographs and charming hand-colored book illustrations.
