Front Cover
T. Fisher Unwin, 1888 - Electronic books - 792 pages
This biography details the life of?Girolamo Sabornarola. Sabornarola was an Italian friar who?suggested that pince-nez glasses could be connected to ribbons fastened around the head and then covered with a fashionable hat. The ribbon would secure the glasses in place and the hat would weigh the ribbon down so that it wouldn't slip. This was one of the precursors to the modern style of?glasses with frames that have arms to rest above the ears.
