Full Description

8vo. ix + (1) + 417 + (1)pp. Publisher’s cloth. Gavin Stamp’s copy.

Although the title evokes that of a famous book by Rudolph Wittkower, this is a not very satisfactory amalgam of wide-ranging intellectual speculation by Van Pelt, much of it devoted to civic life in ancient Greece, and more straightforward discussion by Westfall of the theoretical basis of building structure, urban planning and so on.
