St. Mark's Rest : The History of Venice, Written for the Help of the Few Travellers Who Still Care for Her Monuments (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from St. Mark's Rest: The History of Venice, Written for the Help of the Few Travellers Who Still Care for Her Monuments I am obliged to write shortly, being too old now to spare time for any thing more than needful work; and I write at Speed, careless of afterwards-remediable mistakes, of which adverse readers may gather as manyas they choose that to which such readers are adverse will be found truth that can abide any quantity of adversity. As I can get my chapters done, they shall be published in this form, for such service as they can presently do. The entire book will consist of not more than twelve such parts, with two of appendices, forming two volumes: if I can get what I have to say into six parts, with one appendix, all the better.
