A Sentimental Library: Comprising Books Formerly Owned by Famous Writers, Presentation Copies, Manuscripts, and Drawings - Primary Source EDI Paperback – October 5, by Harry Bache Smith (Author)Author: Harry Bache Smith. Indeed, Sterne alternated bouts of being lionized in London with recuperative continental travels, for he suffered from tuberculosis and was continually plagued by ill-health.

His sole remaining work, A Sentimental Journey, was published in February ; it was based on Sterne's escapades during a seven-month tour by coach through France and Italy. Partly inspired by the author's brief infatuation with a much younger woman, the book Brand: Random House Publishing Group.

A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy is something between a short story and a novella. Its abrupt ending is something of a pun. Sterne makes reference to his earlier work: Tristram Shandy, leading some to imagine it as a sequel.

This is a standalone bagatelle. Light of heart and like the earlier work mostly pointless/5(16). The catalogue lists the books that were added to the library since the catalogue was printed.

It is ex-lib from Georgetown University Library and bound together in brown paper.
