Little Novels of Italy by Maurice Hewlett

"Mr. Hewlett is one of those rare and happy authors who make niches for themselves quite apart from the ordinary trend of literature, where invidious comparisons cannot reach them. The quaint, mediaeval quality of his 'Forest Lovers ' has cast its spell over countless readers even while they questioned wherein that spell could lie. And so it is with his latest volume."

-Commercial Advertiser.

"The range of his art would alone proclaim his remarkable quality as an author.... But what impresses the reader in Mr. Hewlett's scope is not merely its inclusion of many types and passions, of diverse scenes and colors, but that it involves uniformly a sure and easy seizure of the fundamental things lying unchanged forever beneath the surface "

-New York Tribune.

"The style is forceful and picturesque, and the stories are so true to their locality that they read almost like translations."

-New York
"His picturesqueness and the other qualities of his style arc all his own, and they reveal an artistic charm that is at times fascinating, and is always attractive."

-Chicago Tribune.

-All of these are from an advertisement in Book Reviews, Volume 7 [1899]
