Excerpt from Rome and Its Story
To present, within the compass of a single volume, anything like a serviceable sketch of the history and monuments of the city of Rome is a task of extreme di¿iculty, and one which it might take the labour of years to perform with any approach ... to completeness. Nevertheless, I hope that the modern pilgrim may find in the following pages some help in the bewildering effort to recover, from amid the encumbrances of the modern city, some coherent image, or series of images, of old Rome in the successive stages of its development.
