The authors intended to provide a book utilizing modern scholarship and vocabulary and, at the same time, being visually attractive. The succinct definition of a term requires a standard of accuracy that few line drawings can maintain. The authors have therefore gathered together a body of magnificent photographs so that the definition may be illustrated by detail shown in relation to the whole facade or part. A beautiful and excitingly different book which will delight all lovers of fine building. From the Old House Journal reference library.
