Everything connected with Venice, where she made her home for the last thirty-five years of her life, was dear to her, more especially the traditions which linger about the . palazzi and piazze, the narrow canals and call with which she had so close and intimate an aquaintance. And she loved the villas and gardens of the mainland, the district of Asolo and the Trevigiana, the shores of the Brenta and the Lago di Garda, the green slopes of the Berici and Euganean hills.

Nor was her love of Italy confined to any one province. Umbria and Tuscany, Fiesole and Settignano, the stately fragments of Roman gardens, the villas of Tivoli and the Campagna, were alike dear to Lady Layard, and her memory still haunts these enchanted regions. To-day most of the gardens described in these pages have unfortunately perished, and only live in the writings of Renaissance hu .

m . anists, in the pFose of Boccaccio and Bembo, in the verse of Poliziano and Ariosto. But the enthusiasm for beauty and the ardent love of Nature which inspired their creators are themes of which the scholar and the poet will never tire. Four of these studies appeared in the Nineteenth Century and After, and are reprinted by the kind permission of the editor, Mr. Wray Skilbeck. The paper on Cardinal Bembo and his Villa first saw the light in theCornMZZ, that on The Certosa of Val d Ema was published many years ago in the PorfoZio, then edited by Mr. Philip Hamerton, and is now reprinted by Messrs.

Seeleys permission, while I have to thank Mr. John Murray for leave to include in this volume the account of the warrior Guidarellis Tomb at Ravenna, which originally appeared in the Monthly Review. The article on Giovanni Costa, the Roman painter and patriot, was first published in the National Review, and is reprinted by the courtesy of Mr.
