The 19th edition of Sir Banister Fletcher's A History of Architecture is the first major work of history to include an overview of the architectural achievements of the 20th century.

Color maps and photographs appear fro the first time, alongside enlarged reproductions of the remarkable original collection of 'study sheet' line drawings, many of which have been revised and to which a number of new sheets have been added. The lavish complement of photographs is enlarged and improved with many new illustrations within the revised or rewritten central chapters, in addition to those relating to buildings appearing in the book for the first time.
