Chapter Summary

Rosetti continued his activities as a publisher and entrepreneur. Soon after his return to Romania, he initiated the Mutualist Society of the Printers of Romania, later called the &t;Gutenberg Society&t;, promoting a cause which had always been dear to his heart. Rosetti's correspondence with his wife after their return maintained the warm, affectionate tone which was to a large extent almost an outcome of shared hardship and exile, after the rather passionless courtship of the 1840s. A recent study of nineteenth-century Romanian women awards her only one modest entry, and, to my knowledge, there is only one short modern biography of her. Old friendships forged in exile fell victim to the controversies engendered by the Jewish question in late nineteenth-century Romania. The new political realities in the United Romanian Principalities created an ultimately unbridgeable rift between the anti-unionist British Consul in Bucharest, Robert Colquhoun, and his erstwhile Romanian protégés.
