Книга представляет собой репринтное издание 1893 года (издательство "New York, London, Macmillan and co. "). Несмотря на то, что была проведена серьезная работа по восстановлению первоначального качества издания, на некоторых страницах могут обнаружиться небольшие "огрехи": помарки, кляксы и т. п. 1883. With frontispiece. F. Marion Crawford was one of the more famous authors in the English-speaking world at the time of his death in 1909. There is the Rome of the intelligent foreigner, consisting of excavations, monuments, tramways, hotels, typhoid fever, incense, and wax candles; and there is the Rome within, a city of antique customs, good and bad, a town full of aristocratic prejudices, of intrigues, of religion, of old-fashioned honor and new-fashioned scandal, of happiness and unhappiness, of just people and unjust. He also wrote stories of the horror and occult, which are generally the ones for which he is remembered today. To Leeward begins: There are two Romes. He wrote over forty novels, most of which were in the style of disposable romances popular at the time. Besides all this, there is a very modern court and a government of the future, which may almost be said to make up together a third city.
