Notes
  • "One hundred copies of this book were printed at the Red Angel Press, Bremen, Maine and New York City. The text was hand-set in Bembo type and [letterpress] printed on dampened Fabriano Ingres paper. The design and wood-cut illustrations are by Ronald Keller. This work was first published in the Atlantic Monthly, June, 1874, and, with revisions, was later collected in Transatlantic Sketches (1875) and in Italian Hours (1909). For this edition we chose the 1874 version as perhaps being the closest to the author's first impressions during his visit to Siena. We have reprinted the text as it appeared; the original spelling and nineteenth century style of leaving contractions open were preserved. The journal entry was marked with the date line 'SIENA, October 15,' which we used as a sequential decorative device on the recto pages."--Colophon.
  • Box-like book with a single sewn signature of text. A multi-color woodcut on the last four pages folds out from the "box" to depict Siena's Piazza del Campo, including the sloped pavement. The image recreates the text's description of the moon shadow cast by the Palazzo Pubblico on the piazza. Cast paper representation of the famous bronze sculpture of Romulus and Remus inset on the front cover. Bound in cloth with letterpress title on spine.
  • Signed by the illustrator.
  • Reprint of Edel D137.
