Before them, fragrant with blossoming shrubs, stretched a green lawn girdled by noble cedars and palms. A broad path led to the brow of the hill, on whose terraced sides twinkled myriad lights from the villas and gardens of the gay Crimean watering-place. In the background, like an amphitheatre, rose one upon another the purple crests of the bordering mountains. Below was the sparkling, jeweled bay, its wavelets lapping the feet of white-faced cliffs that gleamed as crystal in the rays of the moon.

Beyond the bay, like a great dark emerald, shimmered the waters of the Black Sea.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
