Reading Experience:

Harriet, Countess Granville, to her sister Lady Georgiana Morpeth, 29 September 1815: 'I know of no new books. I have been reading an old one in two volumes, two tiny ones, "Voyage en Italie," par Dupaty. It was strongly recommended to me by Mr. Ward, and I can only say that it is as clever and ridiculous as himself, and therefore very entertaining.'
