Siciliana Sketches of Naples and Sicily, in the Nineteenth Century free pdf Excerpt from Siciliana Sketches of Naples and Sicily, in the Nineteenth Century The essays here translated are taken for the most part from the third volume of Gregorovius's Wander jahre in Italian, published so long ago as 1853 the last, however, that entitled Segasta, Salinas and M aunt Eryx, from his Kleine Schrz'ften, which ap peared thirty-five years later, in 1888. In these days when Italy is such a well-traversed field, when rarely a month, scarcely, indeed, a week passes without bringing some fresh work on Italian history, art, architecture or social life before the public, it may seem that the translation of a series of essays, written, with one exception, more than half a cen tury ago, is uncalled for and demands some word of explanation. Gregorovius, however, was no ordinary traveller or sight-seer, but an eminent scholar, who, with the knowledge of the historian, brought also the imagination of the artist to bear on the scenes he visited- he was, moreover, an author gifted with a power of vivid description such as is vouchsafed to few. Dealing, too, as he does, almost entirely with ancient and mediaeval history, architecture and scenery, his writings seem, to me at least, to retain their freshness and interest un disturbed by the ight of time.
