Strona 122 - Li ruscelletti, che de' verdi colli Del Casentin discendon giuso in Arno, Facendo i lor canali e freddi e molli, Sempre mi stanno innanzi, e non indarno ; Che 1' imagine lor via più m' asciuga, Che il male, ond' io nel volto mi discarno. La rigida giustizia, che mi fruga, Tragge cagion del luogo, ov' io peccai, A metter più gli miei sospiri in fuga.
Strona 114 - In a villa overhanging the towers of Florence, on the steep slope of that lofty hill crowned by the mother city the ancient Fiesole, in gardens which Tully might have envied, with Ficino, Landino and Politian at his side, he delighted his hours of leisure with the beautiful visions of Platonic philosophy, for which the summer stillness of an Italian sky appears the most congenial accompaniment.

Strona 31 - FRGSMAC Published under the Authority of the Alpine Club. In Chromolithography on extra stout drawing paper 28in.
Strona 31 - BEATEN TRACKS ; or, Pen and Pencil Sketches in Italy. By the Authoress of
Strona 10 - Hawkwood therefore appears to me the first real general of modern times — the earliest master, however imperfect, in the science of Turenne and Wellington. Every contemporary Italian historian speaks with admiration of his skilful tactics in battle, his stratagems, his well-conducted retreats. Praise of this description, as I have observed, is hardly bestowed, certainly not so continually, on any former captain.
Strona 34 - Both, and yet neither. There, from age to age, Two ghosts are sitting on their sepulchres. That is the Duke Lorenzo. Mark him well. He meditates, his head upon his hand.
