Out of print for decades, the enchanting classics in this new edition will be welcomed by teachers and students of literature, art history, and aesthetics. Written by an esteemed nineteenth-century scholar of Renaissance art and literature, the "imaginary portraits" are fictionalized accounts of historic figures, with the search for a new aesthetic as the common thread. The Child in the House, out of print since 1904, appears in this treasured new edition, along with Gaston de Latour, an unfinished novel.
