St. Mark's Rest

£10.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

St. Mark's Rest: The History of Venice written for the help of the few travellers who still care for her monuments, by John Ruskin. Published by George Allen, 1902.

Great nations write their autobiographies in three manuscripts — the book of their deeds, the book of their words, and the book of their art. Not one of these books can be understood unless we read the two others; but of the three, the only quite trustworthy one is the last. This is the book detailing the history of Venice. (Source: preface)

Hardback second edition. Very good condition, considering its age. Some minor damage to spine and foxing throughout due to age. Some marks on front cover.
