The commonwealth and government of Venice

Does anybody know of a digitization of "The commonwealth and government of Venice"?

Being a good 2000+ pages into the Memoirs of Casanova, I'm increasingly curious about the social and political systems of Venice in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Any recommendation of other books on the subject would also be greatly appreciated also.

Thanks, igorsk! I was hoping for non-fiction though.

If you don't mind a paper book, "A History of Venice" by John Julius Norwich is widely regarded as one of the best.
