About This Text
This text was prepared by David Malcolmson, using
as copytext, Legends and Stories of Italy, by
Amy Steedman, illustrated by Katharine Cameron.
London: T. C. & E. C. Jack, Ltd., 1909.
Formatting was added to the text, proofreading was completed,
and images were prepared
by Lisa Ripperton.
Since this book was first published before 1923, it is in the public domain
in the United States. By
U.S. law, it entered the public domain 75 years after
its first publication.
A couple of editorial changes were made throughout the text so that it conforms with
other texts on this site. Double quotes were used instead of single quotes
to denote dialog. The word Saint replaces the abbreviation S. everywhere.
