The most comprehensive anthology of writings by visitors to the eternal city ever compiled. Witty, profound and endlessly entertaining. Drawing on French, Italian, Spanish, English and American sources, many hitherto neglected, Ronald Ridley has compiled an endlessly vivid and thought-provoking collage-portrait of Rome through the centuries, illustrated with over 200 images and published in three elegant volumes: The Middles Ages to the Seventeenth Century, The Eighteenth Century and The Nineteenth Century, each complete with full index and bibliography.
