The life of Michael Angelo can never be con sidered entirely satisfactory until the Florentine papers have become accessible. It is for this reason that the translation of this work was for a time deferred. Occasionally the rumor spread that the Florentine papers would be thrown open to the public eye; and, while this appeared probable, Herr Grimm withheld the life of the great sculptor from translation into English, considering it incomplete until these documents could be brought to light.
