Description

**RIBAInternational Book Award 2006 - Long List Nomination**

Volume 1 of the first overview of architectural thought from antiquity to the present day; this volume covers 25 B.C. to 1870 and features over 200 classic essays in the field. Organised thematically for the student and scholar, this book covers Classicism,
Neoclassicism, the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and the Gothic Period.

Each essay includes an introduction and headnotes written by a renowned expert on architectural theory. Several German, French, and Italian essays also appear here in English for the first time.

The books range is stunning, its scholarship thoroughly accurate, and its rendering of ideas entirely lucid.
David Leatherbarrow
