STREETS AND CANALS IN VENICE AND IN THE ISLANDS OF THE LAGOONS

Ongania, Ferdinand. STREETS AND CANALS IN VENICE and STREETS AND CANALS IN VENICE AND IN THE ISLANDS OF THE LAGOONS (CALLE E CANAILI IN VENEZIA and CALLE, CANALI E ISLOLE DELLA LAGUNA IN VENZIA). Two volumes, leather-backed, cloth covered pictorial boards in large folio (22 x 15 inches), the first 1894, the second 1895/96. The American editions of these works, edited by Ferdinand Ongania (Italian, 1842-1911) and published by him In Venice with Italian titles and texts, and published by D. Appleton in NY with English titles and texts. Each volume with one hundred plates in photogravure depicting all of Venice's famous buildings as well as many of its lesser known corners. A luxurious and magisterial production. Wear to the leather and some soiling to the boards, with foxing, mostly to the margins, but occasionally affecting the image, heavy, moderate or light to many of the plates, and to the endpapers and preliminaries. Overall a Very Good copy of this scarce set (OCLC locates 20 libraries holding the Englaish language edition, with some having only one of the two volumes).
