Mediaeval Rome (page 1/2)


Images from The Story of Rome by Norwood Young, illustrated by Nelly Erichsen; this book was published in J. M. Dent & Co’s Mediæval Towns series in 1901. My copy is the 1904 edition.

This book is obviously out of print; you can search for a used copy on Amazon.

Norwood Young died in 1943, less than 70 years ago, according to the Library of Congress Online Catalog, so the text is still under copyright; there are only short extracts here. Nelly Erichsen died in 1918, more than 70 years ago, so the images are out of cpoyright.

I scanned these a long time ago; if you ask nicely (and send a picture of your ankles?) I’ll scan them again for you.
