Introduction by the late Prof. Henry Morley, Professor of English Literature at University College London.

Simultaneously, the less tranquil slumbers of Venetian maidens, coquettes and prudes are also disturbed by the arrival of a newcomer: the devastatingly handsome Florentine nobleman of elegant manners.
