Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When published in 1981, Cambridge professor Howard's survey of Venetian architecture was hailed as the only authoritative study of its scope in English. This new edition contains the same text with minor revisions, many of which reflect research Howard published in her Venice and the East. Reduced in size for convenient transport in a tourist's backpack or purse, the new edition boasts crisp new color photos, extensively updated footnotes, and an expanded bibliography. The concise, fact-filled narrative chronicles the evolution of Venice's major building types-churches, palaces, and guildhalls-from the Byzantine era to the present. Just as scholarly and comprehensive, but written in a voice that more poetically evokes the Most Serene Republic's timeless allure, is Richard Goy's Venice: The City and Its Architecture. Goy takes a nonlinear approach, devoting each chapter to a broad theme or a single building type. Collections specializing in architecture will need Howard's revised edition; other libraries owning the earlier edition can guiltlessly skip the revision. Both Howard and Goy are highly recommended for large public and academic libraries. To ensure complete coverage, academic libraries should also consider Ennio Concina's A History of Venetian Architecture.-David Solt sz, Cuyahoga Cty.

    Thankfully republished

    A fascinating and thought-provoking read - especially for those who delve into the history of Venice and who are entranced by its great architectural legacy. Howard presents an unbiased view of the topic; even periods such as the Napoleanic occupation with its destruction of historic buildings are treated with fairness. Furthermore, the flow of the chronology from one archectural style to another is smooth. Critical examples are discussed with clear accompanying graphics.
