A Wanderer in Venice eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 291 pages of information about A Wanderer in Venice.

Venice needs a whole library to describe her:  a book on her churches and a book on her palaces; a book on her painters and a book on her sculptors; a book on her old families and a book on her new; a book on her builders and a book on her bridges; a book—­but why go on?  The fact is self-evident.

Yet there is something that a single book can do:  it can testify to delight received and endeavour to kindle an enthusiasm in others; and that I may perhaps have done.
