WHEN The Marble Faun was first published, it attracted Amoiican readers, at least, almost as much, by its descriptions of Roman ruins and Italian land scape, by the delicate and imaginative touch with which it reproduced or gave now meaning to famous works of antique and Renaissance art, as by the weird fascination of its plot and psychological problems. How the author was enabled to impart this additional charm to his work is explained by a perusal of his French and Italian Note-Books There the daily experience of his Italian sojourn, and the mute life of painting and sculpture as it stood to be reviewed by his eye, are set down precisely as they presented them selves to him at the time. Of France he saw but little, and the main portion of these journals is therefore devoted to Italy, where he remained from the end of January, 1858, until the middle of May, 1859. While he was in Kome the second time, his elder daughter, Una, , then about six teen years of age, had a severe attack of Roman fever, and his associations with the place were tinged with gloom.
