--ABOUT THIS ITEM--
An influential and prolific Victorian author, Margaret Oliphant (1828-97) wrote ninety-eight novels, some fifty short stories, works of biography and non-fiction, and a series of cultural histories of European cities, including Venice. This book paints a compelling picture of the cultural development of the great city of Venice during the middle ages and the Renaissance through biographical sketches of its key figures. They include the doge Enrico Dandolo, the explorer Marco Polo, and the artists Titian and Tintoretto. The volumes on Florence (1876) and Rome (1895) are also reissued in this series.
