Venice: The Anthology Guide (Paperback)

£13.99
Usually despatched within 1 week.

Synopsis

"Venice: The Anthology Guide" is the sixth edition, completely updated, revised and reset, of Milton Grundy's perennially fresh classic travel guide to the city. It is unlike any other guide, for it conducts visitors round Venice using the observations and opinions of famous writers and art historians to enlighten them. Among the people it quotes are Vasari, Ruskin, Berenson, Wittkower, Dickens, Henry James, A.J.C. Hare, Otto Demus, Ernst Gombrich, Michael Levey, Cecil Gould, Hugh Honour, James Morris and Alan Bennett. It includes thirty new colour illustrations, twenty of them by Sarah Quill, the renowned photographer of Venice. The book divides Venice up into seven walks and four excursions, with eight clear maps, so that people can see the maximum number of sights they wish to in a limited time. Its coverage of Venice's rich store of paintings and sculpture is as full as that of its unique architecture. Most of the illustrations - Sarah Quill's apart - are taken from old engravings and paintings, and, like the text, provide a fascinating historical perspective on the present day versions of the scenes and buildings they represent.
