Full Description

4to. 104pp, text ills. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. No ownership inscription but Gavin Stamp’s copy.

Short essays on the intellectual basis of architectural history by a galaxy of the great and the good (including Gombrich, Rykwert, Spiro Kostof, Georges Teyssot, Kenneth Frampton, Kurt Forster, and Manfredo Tafuri), but the reader needs to be brave to wrestle with discussions that demand a knowledge of the respective opinions of Semper, Wölfflin, Riegl, Hegel and Weber, as well as of more familiar writings by Banham, Benevolo and Giedion.
