ROMAN CAMPAGNA

(Boston: Small, Maynard and Company, [1913]).

FIRST EDITION. TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH BY LOUISE CAICO AND MARY DOVE. The name, "Roman Campagna" suggests only the plain immediately around the city, but Cervesato uses it in its wider sense to include the whole of the old "Latina Tellus" (the Latin Land), a territory that extends for more than 120 miles along the shore of the Mediterranean and has a superficial area of 1,245 miles square. A beautiful area of Italy captured in words and photographs by a fine writer and true aficionado. Item #31496

First Edition, the English Sheets with the American publisher's slug added. With 407 black and white photographs throughout. 8vo, handsomely bound in publisher's full navy cloth, the upper cover decorated with a 3 1/2" gilt medallion motif which is embossed with gilt lettering, the spine lettered in gilt. 395 pp. A bright and fine copy, very well preserved, a touch of the inevitable foxing occasionally encountered.
