FIRST EDITION of this series of articles first published in the Review of the two worlds.

Although Antoine Fontaney had worked as secretary to the French ambassador to Spain, he chose to paint this picture by adopting the identity of Lord Feeling, a British diplomat whose fictitious bibliography serves as an introduction to the book.

"Antoine Fontanay (1803-1837) is one of the best-known writers of his time: discreet in his life, which was brief and sad; discreet in his work, which consists of a few books that are now impossible to find and articles in magazines, he showed a personal and delicate talent in all the genres in which he wrote."
(Bibliothèque Nationale. Romanticism, Exhibition Catalogue. 1930. 239).

One of the rarest of romantics.
