Note 039
From Chapter 60 of the Decline & Fall

The Venetians have been slow in writing and publishing their history. Their most ancient monuments are,
1. The rude Chronicle (perhaps) of John Sagorninus, (Venezia, 1765, in octavo), which represents the state and manners of Venice in the year 1008.
2. The larger history of the doge, (1342-1354), Andrew Dandolo, published for the first time in the 12th tom. of Muratori, A.D. 1728.
The History of Venice by the Abbe Laugier (Paris, 1728), is a work of some merit, which I have chiefly used for the constitutional part.
