Saracinesca (1887)
Set chiefly in Rome during the 1860s, the novel paints a rich picture of the period, detailing the spiritual and economic problems of the aristocracy at a time when its influence and status were under attack from the emerging forces of modernity.

Casa Braccio (1894)
The story of a Scottish doctor, his love for an Italian nun, and the repercussions their choices have on everyone in their lives.

Mr. Isaacs (1882)
Crawford's first novel, a brilliant sketch of modern Anglo-Indian life mingled with a touch of Oriental mystery.

Marietta (1901)
A love story and one of the best he ha ever produced...Picturesque and exciting. It is all delightful... a genuine romance, a pleasure to read and a pleasure to remember.

The White Sister (1908)
A Roman setting lends appropriate coloring to this story of convent life. A prince, an adherent of the clerical party, is killed in a motor car accident and because of his refusal to have his marriage legally ratified, combined with the fact that no will comes to light, his daughter is turned out into the streets by the jealous inheritor of the title and wealth. The tale deals with her renunciation of her love for an artillery officer, her life as the "white sister" in a convent, her discovery of her aunt's theft of the will, the return of her love and the struggle between her obligation to the man and her allegiance to the church, and her final release from the convent.

The Upper Berth (1894)
The two stories by Mr. Crawford, presented in this volume, have been in print before, having been originally written for two Christmas annuals which were issued some years back. With the belief that the stories are, however, still unknown to the larger portion of Mr. Crawford's public, and in the opinion that they are well worthy of preservation in more permanent form, the publishers have decided to reprint them as the initial volume of the "Autonym" library.
