From Library Journal 
The chief purpose of this book is to provide a photographic record of the sites Emerson visited in Italy during 1833. Unfortunately, though very fine, the sample of photography provided with the proof was very small, making an unqualified recommendation difficult. The text, however, is characterized by a skillful economy, and despite a slip or two effectively presents the milieu. In concise, descriptive passages, Barish captures the look and atmosphere of towns and regions: the butter-yellows and gold of Malta, the black basaltic fields beneath Etna, the rubble-strewn wasteland around the Solfatura are all vividly conveyed. Well-integrated quotes give an overview of Emerson's reactions to Catholic ritual, Roman ruins, and the poverty of Naples. Not scholarly, but Emerson aficionados will find this an intriguing companion to Emerson's journals.
