Casanova was an Venetian adventurer and author (1725 - 1798). His Memoirs provide an intimate insight into the life of European society in the eighteenth century. These Memoirs are the history of a unique life, a unique personality, one of the greatest of autobiographies; as a record of adventures. They tell the story of a man who loved life passionately for its own sake: one to whom woman was, indeed, the most important thing in the world, but to whom nothing in the world was indifferent. The bust which gives us the most lively notion of him shows us a great, vivid, intellectual face, full of fiery energy and calm resource, the face of a thinker and a fighter in one. (Introduction, Arthur Symons)
