Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Memory, Family, and Self: Tuscan Family Books and Other European Egodocuments (14th-18th Century) presents the table of contents, an editorial note, a list of abbreviations, and a preface. The book discusses the concept of memory places, essentially invented by Pierre Nora and then taken up in Italy by Mario Isnenghi. It deals with the study of family memoirs among the aspects destined to bear some of the newest and most productive fruits in future fields of research on broadly "autobiographical" writings. The research on family memory texts allows one to go beyond the broad category of egodocuments and understand other historical documents that incorporate memory: at the very least the expressions of artistic production.

Keywords: egodocuments; Europe; family memoirs
