About John Florio

Florio was the son of a Protestant refugee from Catholic Italy, and a true scholar.

Attending Oxford University, he later wrote and edited books on his mother tongue. They included two grammars - First Fruites (1578) and Second Fruites (1591).

Florio certainly mastered the Worlde of Wordes - and in turn this become the title for his own English-Italian dictionary in 1598.
