The appendixes feature two archival documents of value to the View of Venice, including the previously unpublished will of Anton Kolb, the German merchant who oversaw the woodcut’s production. One appendix presents entries on the sites and buildings still most tvisited by tourists today—the spaces of premodern governance and industry but also of the palaces that line the Grand Canal, and churches and their belltowers.
