J.H., Count de Santo Domingo : Tablettes romaines; contenant des faits, des anecdotes et des observations sure les moeurs, les usages, les ceremonies, le gouvernement de Rome

'Another book of a very different character has amused me mightily; it is entitled "Tablettes Romaines", and is full of wit and vivacity, and gives a very just and true picture of modern Rome, at least, as far as I am competent to judge. I wish you could get it. The pretended name of the Author is Santo Domingo, but, somehow, I suspect that to be a fudge. It was printed at Bruselles, for neither in Italy nor at Paris would such free opinions have been allowed to see the light - at least during the Carlists day'.

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Sarah Harriet Burney      Print: Book
