Duke de Leviz : The Carbonaro, A Piedmontese Tale

Thursday, 9 April 1829: 'I got a book from the Duke de Leviz, the same gentleman with whom I had an awkward meeting at Abbotsford [in August 1828] owing to his having forgot his credentials which left me at an unpleasant doubt as to his character and identity. His book is inscribed to me with hyperbolical praises [...] The book is better than would be expected from the exaggerated nonsense of the dedication.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Walter Scott      Print: Book
