Separate printing of this account of the Austrian Riviera town on the gulf of Fiume (now Opatija). From the comfort of a well appointed hotel in Varese, Burton recounts with some asperity the inconveniences endured as they stayed in the Hotel Stephanie during three months when the "pestiferous wind," the Scirrocco blew. "We proceed to satisfy you , under the conviction that only your excellent paper would print the truth about a place which spends so many florins in advertizing itself and in silencing the unpleasant voice of truth."
Penzer: "VERY RARE."
