On books: The Atlas of Ancient Rome - It seems to be, or should be, a law of intellectual life that the more obscure a discipline, the better the scholarship that it inspires. Its very obscurity, like a dragon guarding a valued horde, repels all but the most valiant and serious scholars.

    Gregory Cerio, Editor-in-Chief

    Lately I have spent a great deal of time in Hudson, New York—a town whose ongoing revival (as noted countless times here and elsewhere) has been led by the antiques trade. But antiques aren’t the only story here, and in trying to understand the place I was put in mind of an encounter Henry James had with Hudson in the autumn of 1904. more...
