A monumental survey of the domestic and religious architecture of Dutch towns and cities from Roman times onwards, taking into account the changing social, political and economic scene through the centuries and focusing also on the impact of particular personalities and the peculiarities of specific regions. Well-illustrated throughout (and very heavy, so purchasers should be prepared for substantial postage cost).
