Sandbox[edit]

The New York Times generally described the books of the "Romance" series as not a "very serious study" of history, but always a "picturesque treatment of an epoch." For example, the Times wrote of Champney's tales in Romance of the French Abbeys (1905), "some are tragic, some are humorous, but all are picturesque and are told with ingenuity and with a certain fidelity to the atmosphere and spirit to which they relate." The newspaper also praised the "great abundance of the excellent illustrations" in the books.
