These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Sketches from the Subject and Neighbour Lands of Venice:Look inside the book: As there are in these papers a good many historical references, some of them to rather out-of-the-way matters, but matters which could not always be explained at length in the text, I have drawn up a chronological table of the chief events in the history of the lands and cities of which I have had to speak. ...And in later times, when the Lombard and the Frankish Austria were both forgotten, when the name clave only to a third Austria, the more modern Austria of Germany-the Eastern mark called into being to guard Germany from the Magyar-the Venetian land has more than once become Austrian in another sense; some of it in that sense remains Austrian still. ...It has not only been, like its neighbours, Venetian and Austrian in two widely different senses-it has not only been Venetian in the old geographical sense, and Venetian in the sense of being subject to the commonwealth of Venice-it has not only been Austrian in the old Lombard sense, and Austrian in the sense of being subject to the Dukes of the German Austria-but it has also shifted backwards and forwards between the rule of the Serene Republic and the rule of the Austrian Dukes, in a way to which it would not be easy to find a parallel even among the old revolutions of its neighbours.
