First published in 1908, The Shores of the Adriatic, the Austrian Side is a companion book to The Shores of the Adriatic, the Italian Side. Written by British painter and author Frederick Hamilton Jackson, this is a scholarly work, dealing with the geography of Eastern Europe surrounding the Adriatic Sea and the customs of the people found there. Given the unique cultures found in the region, much of the book focuses on the people, their dress, their style of architecture, and their art. Jackson also spends a good deal of time delving into the history of each region he comes across, including Croatia, Dalmatia, Istria, and Slovenia. This comprehensive book will delight readers of history and sociology.
