Full Description

8vo. xii+400pp, photo frontis, 32 photo plates, text ills. Publisher’s cloth.

A history of the architectural profession from classical times to the end of the 19th century, insular indeed in that it manages to say not one word about the Ecole des Beaux-Arts (and nothing much about any French or Italian architect later than Bernini and Mansart), but in other respects by no means without merit.
