"(Ital.) Florence. The temptation. 8 x 10. The tempter has opened a jewel case and is offering the anxious looking object of his advances a trinker, in Order to overcome her manifest fear and reluctance. This is a repulsive but faithfully outlined episode, the chief feature of which is the uncommonly well drawn and painted face of the woman."
