I have also heard it declared to be a place dangerous to physical health. It is with gratification, therefore, after living therein, both beneath it and above, as few can have done, for considerable portions of the last six years, that I can bring solid evidence to belie both accusations. They indeed would prove far more applicable if levelled at certain other august centres of Rome. For I find it necessary to return thanks here for valuable assistance given to mo without hesitation and at all times, not only by my personal friend Comm. Giacomo Boni and those of his staff, but by each and all of the workmen and custodians down to the humblest, under his direction.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
