CommentsTales based on Italian historical characters and events. Inscribed on the half-title to "Fernand Calmettes / son vieil ami / Anatole France." Fernand Calmettes (1846-1914) was a writer and editor who was especially active in preparing memoirs for publication. Books inscribed by Anatole France are surprisingly uncommon.
