1901. With 20 full-page drawings by T. deThulstrup. Croly, Irish divine, poet and author, writes the story of the destruction of Jerusalem by Romans under Titus; and here, as in Marston , a romance of the French Revolution and the subsequent European warfare, Croly touches, on another side, the historical novelists. This remarkable historical romance begins: Tarry thou till I come. The words shot through me-I felt them like an arrow in my heart-my brain whirled-my eyes grew dim. The troops, the priests, the populace, the world, passed away from before my senses like phantoms.
