Originally published in 1917, this extensively illustrated works on Architecture contains a wealth of information with chapters on Prehistoric, Greek, Roman, Gothic and Modern Architecture to name just a few! It is intended to provide a concise but authorative look at the histories of Architecture,sculpture and painting. This is a fascinating read for any architectural enthusiast or historian, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality,modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
