Things Seen in Venice

Things Seen in Venice by Lonsdale Ragg

Things Seen in Venice by Lonsdale Ragg

Venice, once among the most powerful states of the Western world, now a much-visited but still romantic city of canals, architecture and art. Most European cities have changed so much that a 1920 guidebook would be of little practical use, but not so Venice. Lonsdale and Laura Ragg were residents of the city – where Lonsdale was chaplain of St. George’s English church from 1905 to 1909 – and they knew it well. Their guide brings its buildings and canals, its campi and its hidden campielli, to life in a surprisingly contemporary way. Try listening to Chapter 2 as your vaporetto chugs along the Grand Canal from the railway station to the Rialto bridge, only slightly faster than it would have done a hundred years ago!

Vagabonding Down the Andes

Vagabonding Down the Andes by Harry Franck

Vagabonding Down the Andes by Harry Franck

Sometime in the latter half of 1911, Harry A. Franck jumped out of a box-car and crossed the Rio Grande, from Laredo. Thus began a journey, often afoot, that Harry estimated would take him 8 months. It ended up occupying four years of his life. The first leg of his Latin American epic is recorded in “Tramping Through Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras; Being the Random Notes of an Incurable Vagabond”. He then headed south to the Canal Zone, Teddy Roosevelt’s grand experiment in socialism, and applied within the Zone police force for a position as a census taker (chronicled in “Zone Policeman 88; A Close Range Study of the Panama Canal and Its Workers”,). Since he was one of the few Americans who actually spoke Spanish, and a bevy of other languages, he was hired immediately. By June, 1912, he’d bankrolled enough money to see him through the opening phase of the work I’ll be reading for you, “Vagabonding Down the Andes; Being the Narrative of a Journey, Chiefly Afoot, From Panama to Buenos Aires”. Leaving the Zone in June of 1912, with “objections to his reemployment”, he caught a steamer and entered the South American continent at Cartagena, Colombia. Approximate 30 months later, having walked most of the length of the Inca highway, he staggered from a trek that took him over mountains and through raw jungle onto a ferry, and thence sailed into Buenos Aires, regarded as one of the most glamorous and expensive cities on earth at the time. This leg of the four volume epic (which later concludes with “Working North from Patagonia; Being the Narrative of a Journey, Earned on the Way, Through Southern and Eastern South America) was the longest one, and in many respects, “Vagabonding Down the Andes” was also the most detailed.

Narrative of an Expedition to the Shores of the Arctic Sea

Narrative of an Expedition to the Shores of the Arctic Sea by John Rae

Narrative of an Expedition to the Shores of the Arctic Sea by John Rae

After the bizarre death of Thomas Simpson, Dr. John Rae was chosen to complete the survey of the Northwest Passage, linking the work of Simpson and Peter Dease with the previously known country to the east. Rae was recognized for his endurance and skill in wilderness travel, adopting the methods of the native peoples often eschewed by other European explorers. This is his report on the initial work in the years 1846-47.

The Reign of Tiberius

The Reign of Tiberius by Publius Cornelius Tacitus

The Reign of Tiberius by Publius Cornelius Tacitus

The Annals was Tacitus’ final work, covering the period from the death of Augustus Caesar in the year 14. He wrote at least 16 books, but books 7-10 and parts of books 5, 6, 11 and 16 are missing. Book 6 ends with the death of Tiberius and books 7-12 presumably covered the reigns of Caligula and Claudius. The remaining books cover the reign of Nero, perhaps until his death in June 68 or until the end of that year, to connect with the Histories. The second half of book 16 is missing, ending with the events of the year 66. We do not know whether Tacitus completed the work or whether he finished the other works that he had planned to write; he died before he could complete his planned histories of Nerva and Trajan, and no record survives of the work on Augustus Caesar and the beginnings of the Empire with which he had planned to complete his work as an historian. (Summary from Wikipedia.)

The Tower of London

The Tower of London by Arthur Poyser

The Tower of London by Arthur Poyser

History. “… those who read this book and have no opportunity of visiting the Tower expect that the characters in the moving drama of its history shall have some semblance of life as they walk across the stage…. My wish has been to persuade those who come to visit the Tower that there is a great deal to be seen in its immediate vicinity… A noble and historic building like the Tower resembles a venerable tree whose roots have spread into the soil in all directions, during the uncounted years of its existence, far beyond the position of its stem.”

The Stones of Venice, Volume 1

The Stones of Venice, Volume 1 by John Ruskin

The Stones of Venice, Volume 1 by John Ruskin

The Stones of Venice is a three-volume treatise on Venetian art and architecture by English art historian John Ruskin. Intending to prove how the architecture in Venice exemplified the principles he discussed in his earlier work, The Seven Lamps of Architecture, Ruskin examined the city in detail, describing for example over eighty churches. He discusses architecture of Venice’s Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance periods, and provides a general history of the city as well. The book aroused considerable interest in Victorian Britain and beyond.
