New York/Venice: Ongania, 1896. 22 by 15 inches -- Folio complete in two parts in one with 100 amazing photogravure illustrations from original photographs. The binding is broken and badly worn but the 100 plates are amazing and show Venice from a vast array of vantage points in all it's 19th Century glory.
