Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The 22 essays in Henry James's Italian hours represent a type of travel writing that provides a journey through time as much as over terrain. This first fully annotated edition presents unique insights into the way 19th-century Europe was rapidly changing during James's life as well as practical help for modern travellers to Italy. Lovingly edited, annotated, and introduced by John Auchard. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
