Here is a photo of Burckhardt on his way to class.  No Power Point then: he's holding the pictures he wants to show them.

There are many copies online of
The Civilization Of The Renaissance In Italy  (such as that one at www.archive.org), and, of course,

The Civilisation of the Renaissance in Italy  (at www.gutenberg.org).

The idea is to get a general impression of Burckhardt, rather than reading him for facts (since he is often completely wrong).
