"An entertaining book, full of interesting facts and original reflections." -The Times, May 16, 1865. * There is in this volume not only the keenest perception of the beautiful in nature and art, not only the delicious flavour and perfume of a well-bred and well-informed mind and intellect, but there is, in addition, a depth, an originality, and a boldness in the handling of political and social topics, which gives to the book a peculiar interest, and must stamp it with a permanent value."-Reader.

“A series of most valuable sketches of Italy."-Spectator.

“Twenty thoughtful chapters, founded upon observation and experience of political and social life in Italy."--Examiner. "Furnishes much entertaining information, and will be read with pleasure."--Morning Post.

“ The latest volume on Italy, and one of the most instructive and entertaining." - Morning Advertiser

“ Contains some charming descriptions of scenery and some very lively pictures of national manners. ... The chapter on People we meet in Italy,' introduces the reader to the Brownings, Landor, Gibson the sculptor, William W. Story, Miss Hosiner, Mrs Beecher Stowe, and other eminent foreigners now or formerly to be seen in Rome and various Italian cities. We could quote many delightful passages from this portion of the volume."--London Review.

“ In this volume, the pleasant, the useful, amusement, information, sense, playfulness, the dryness of fact and the bright drops of fancy, are co-mingled in happy proportion." - Illustrated London News.

" Discursive in the most charmingly feminine manner, but written with all the strength, boldness, and brendth of view of a Harriet Martineau. The work is seasonable, and displays a mastery of details which will make it widely welcome. We have no hesitation in describing it as the most interesting book of the present season. It suggests and stimulates thought as well as instructs." Illustrated News of the World.

“ By far the most readable and delightful of all Miss Cobbe's books... The sketches of people one meets with in Italy is the most brilliant chapter that has ever appeared from Miss Cobbe's pen. Her courtly sketch of Mrs Somerville is a perfect piece of writing, and contains every literary grace ef which Miss Cobbe is mistress."--English Leader

"A striking picture of the Italy of the present moment; nowhere conld the English reader obtain a better or more comprehensive idea of the state of the country in its social, moral, and political aspects."'- Bristol Mercury.

An important and able work, the production of a close and correct observer, who has an honest purpose as well as a keen eye, and who communicates solid information, relative to some of the gravest subiects that can concern a people, with a vivacity which every reader must relish, and a vividness of impression that is seldom attained."--North British Daily Mail.
