Review of Pictures from Italy, 27 Dec. 2012
I read about this book in Claire Tomalin's biography of Dickens and was fascinated by the fact that it has been in print ever since it was published in 1846. I bought 3 copies. There is one illustration shown which is by Samuel Palmer. I do not know whether he illustrated the original edition. It would be fascinating to see them if he did. I have not yet finished reading the book but am thoroughly enjoying it. The explanatory notes to each chapter are very helpful.
