Venice: A Documentary History, 1450-1630 by David S. Chambers

During the Renaissance, there were two centres of art, culture and mercantile power in Italy: Florence, and Venice. This is a source book of primary materials, almost none previously available in English, for the history of the city-state of Venice. The time period covers the apogee of Venetian power and reputation to the beginnings of its decline in the 1630s. Sources used include diaries, chronicles, Inquisitorial records, literature, legislation, and contemporary descriptions, and are organized in sections by theme and accompanied by brief introductions. Originally published by Basil Blackwell, 1992.
