ITALIAN LITERATURE.

By RICHARD GARNETT, C. B., LL. D.,

Formerly Keeper of Printed Books in the British Museum.


"Finished and graceful, at once delicate and strong, and never relapses into prosiness."—The Dial.

"Dr. Garnett is lucid in arrangement, agreeable and correct, and often powerful and felicitous in style. He has done a real service to both English and Italian literatures."—Literature.

"The manual is a worthy companion of its predecessors, and will be found useful by each one who desires to refresh or enlarge his acquaintance with the magnificent achievements of Italian genius."—Public Ledger, Philadelphia.

"A most interesting book, written from a full knowledge of the subject, but without pedantry. The style is simple, graceful, and readable; the erudition is easily discovered by those who seek for it, but it is not ostentatiously displayed. Scholars will appreciate it at its worth; the general reader will be grateful for the charity of the text, and for the labor that has made his path one of pleasure only."—Saturday Evening Gazette.
