by Luigi Cornaro

[In the year 1553 Cornaro took up his pen again and wrote another short treatise on the subject to which he was devoted. He was now eighty-six years of age, but his writing had lost none of his clearness of expression and he was even more convinced of the essential rightness of his teachings.]
