Overview

The first of four novellas, which together were published in Old New York, set in the mid-1800s

Lewis Raycie is sent on a Grand Tour of Europe with instructions from his father to acquire a collection of accepted art works. His father's dream is to own a Raphael; instead, Lewis returns with a priceless collection of Renaissance masterpieces by Piero della Francesca and others of equal stature. They are, however, unknown in America.

His father is appalled and disinherits him. His family ridicules him. But it is only after Lewis dies that the magnificent collection gets the recognition it really deserves.
