Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall Travel Lover's Library. "The object and plan of this book is somewhat different from that of any other guides at present before the public. It does not compete or clash with such existing works; it is rather intended to supplement than to supplant them..I desire rather to supply the tourist who wishes to use his travel as a means of culture with such historical and antiquarian information as will enable him to understand, and therefore to enjoy, the architecture, painting and minor arts of the towns he visits. In one word, it is my object to give the reader in very compendious form the result of all those inquiries which have naturally suggested themselves to my own mind during thirty-five years of foreign travel, the solution of which has cost myself a good deal of research, thought, and labour, beyond the facts which I could find in the ordinary handbooks.." Illustrated with a photogravure frontispiece and sixty-four full page plates in duogravure. 425 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition; binding tight; clean, white text pages. Gift inscription on front endpaper dated 1916. Decorated covers; no dust jacket.

Goethe, J. W. (Johann Wolfgang), 1749-1832. Auden, W. H., 1907-1973, translator. Mayer, Elizabeth, 1884- , translator.  
Italian Journey [1786-1788]. Translated by W. H. Auden and Elizabeth Mayer.

Publisher: Penguin Books [c1985].
508, [3] p., index; 20 cm. "Goethe did not go to Italy as a journalist in search of newsworthy stories, but some of the best passages in 'Italian Journey' owe as much to journalistic good luck as they do to literary talent. While sketching a ruined fort in Malcesine he is nearly arrested as an Austrian spy; Vesuvius obliges with a major eruption during his stay in Naples; sailing back from Sicily, the boat he has taken is kind enough to get itself nearly shipwrecked on Capri; eccentric and comic characters cross his path, like the Neapolitan Princess with the outrageous tongue, the choleric Governor of Messina, or Miss Hart, the future Lady Hamilton, who seems-- God forgive her!-- to have invented the Modern Dance; a chance remark overheard leads to his meeting with the humble relatives of Cagliostro, the most famous international swindler of the time. Goethe is not usually thought of as a funny man, but his descriptions of such events reveal a real comic gift and, even more surprisingly, perhaps, they show how ready he was to see himself in a comic light." From Carlsbad to the Brenner to Verona to Venice (Sept. & Oct. 1786); Ferrara to Rome, Oct. 1786-Feb. 1787; Naples & Sicily, Feb. - June 1787; Rome, June 1787-April 1788. Color pictorial paper covers; minor wear; VG. stock#40838.
