About the Book

James's essays on Italy are remarkable for their humanity. Traveling extensively throughout the country, including Venice, Rome, and Florence, he presents a portrait of a beautiful but impoverished country and, while he appreciated the beauty of the art, the ancient architecture, and the landscape, he never was able to forget the dire situation of many Italians, a state that caused him to meditate on the morality of the traveler who goes there to gaze on them.

First Sentence

The chapters of which this volume is composed have with few exceptions already been collected, and were then associated with others commemorative of other impressions of(no very extensive) excursions and wanderings.
