Elek, 1962, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled along edges, notably at the top edges where we have several small closed tears.

From the cover: “In this sumptuous book, every aspect of Venice is explored. Marcel Brion, who has spent much of his life there, surveys the city’s history from the fifth century to the nineteenth, vividly describes its passionate way of life, and evaluates its importance in the world of art. Edwin Smith’s subtle photographs illustrate the glory of Venice and her sister islands displayed in their architecture, paintings, sculpture and glassware. Together they have created a volume which contains the whole spirit of Venice.”
