“Oh! she was good as she was fair.
None-none on earth above her!
As pure in thought as angels are,
To know her was to love her.”
– Samuel Rogers
Samuel Rogers was an English poet who saw significant popularity during his lifetime (1763-1855). Early in the 19th-century, Rogers made a continental European tour in which he kept a diary of his encounters and major events in Switzerland and Italy. From this journey came his longest work ‘Italy’.
After the initial success of ‘Italy’ in 1822, Rogers himself commissioned artists to illustrated the next editions. It was even more successful than that of the first edition. This 1836 edition includes these famous illustrations of famous Italian landmarks. This collection of poems includes topographical descriptions of Italy including Naples, Bologna, Florence, Rome, Venice, and the Alps.
