The Childhood of Rome
by

Publisher: Little, Brown, and Company
Number of pages: 262

Description:
The tales of the founding of Rome and of the early life of the Italian races are many and contradictory. There must have been, however, heroic semi-savage figures like the Romulus of the legends, and the aim of the author has been to re-create in some degree the atmosphere and the surroundings in which they may have lived.
