In the Appreciation, Havelock Ellis notes: "No doubt whatever -- and this apart from the qu estion as to whether his autobiography should be counted as moral or immoral literature -- Casanova delivered himself bound into the hands of the moralists". "The Casanova family was originally Spanish". "In 1755 a spy of the Venetian Inquisition re ported that Casanova united impiety, imposture, and wantonness to a degree that inspired horror". Casanova writes about: "His adventures at the court of Rome", "His famous escape from prison in Venice", and "His state lottery wins fortune in Paris".
