Item description for Marietta by F. Marion Crawford...
1901. With frontispiece. F. Marion Crawford was one of the more famous authors in the English-speaking world at the time of his death in 1909. He wrote over forty novels, most of which were in the style of disposable romances popular at the time. He also wrote stories of the horror and occult, which are generally the ones for which he is remembered today. Marietta begins: Very little was known about George, the Dalmatian, and the servants in the house of Angelo Beroviero, as well as the workmen of the latter's glass furnace, called him Zorzi, distrusted him, suggested that he was probably a heretic, and did not hide their suspicion that he was in love with the master's only daughter, Marietta. All these matters were against him, and people wondered why old Angelo kept the waif in his service, since he could have engaged any one out of a hundred young fellows of Murano, all belonging to the almost noble caste of the glassworkers, all good Christians, all trustworthy, and all ready to promise that the lovely Marietta should never make the slightest impression upon their respectfully petrified hearts.

Marietta: A Maid of Venice is the story of Zorzi, the foreign servant of a Venetian glass-blower. There are two things he wants; to be allowed to operate a furnace of his own, and to have Marietta, his master's beautiful daughter, for his wife. Both these goals seem impossible, as the trade of glass-blowing is reserved for native Venetians only, and Marietta is engaged to marry Jacopo Contarini, a handsome nobleman. A good read, though long, with interesting plot twists and various amusing observations on the strange habits of women. It is based on a true story.
