A Wanderer in Venice eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 291 pages of information about A Wanderer in Venice.

“It is not very easy to point out the merits which make this volume immeasurably superior to nine-tenths of the books of travel that are offered the public from time to time.  Perhaps it is to be traced to the fact that Mr. Lucas is an intellectual loiterer, rather than a keen-eyed reporter, eager to catch a train for the next stopping-place.  It is also to be found partially in the fact that the author is so much in love with the artistic life of Holland.”—­Globe Democrat, St. Louis.

A Wanderer in Paris

Wherever Mr. Lucas wanders he finds curious, picturesque, and unusual things to interest others, and his mind is so well stored that everything he sees is suggestive and stimulating.  He is almost as much at home in Paris as in London, and even those who know the city best will find much in the book to interest and entertain them.

VOLUMES OF ESSAYS BY E.V.  LUCAS

Character and Comedy

“Of all the readers of Charles Lamb who have striven to emulate him, Mr. Lucas comes nearest to being worthy of him.  Perhaps it is because it is natural to him to look upon life and letters and all things with something of Lamb’s gentleness, sweetness, and humor.”—­The Tribune.

Another Book of Verse for Children

Verses of the seasons, of “little fowls of the air,” and of “the country road”; ballads of sailormen and of battle; songs of the hearthrug, and of the joy of being alive and a child, selected by Mr. Lucas and illustrated in black and white and with colored plates by Mr. F.D.  Bedford.  The wording of the title is an allusion to the very successful “Book of Verse for Children” issued ten years ago.
