Footnotes

  • Edward Lear lived in Rome from 1837 to 1848, apart from two visits to England during one of which he organised the publishing of Illustrated Excursions, which was based upon journeys he had made into the area around Rome and Naples. "Queen Victoria, one of the subscribers, was so impressed with the work that she invited Lear to give her a series of twelve drawing lessons" (ODNB). This second series is devoted to scents in the Papal States.
