The Boston Architectural Club was organized in 1889 for the purpose of associating those interested in the profession of architecture, with a view to mutual encouragement and help in studies. The plates published in this book are devoted to Spain less than a decade after the end of WWI, when it was slowly revealing itself as one of the most stimulating countries in Europe. The Club found that Spain rivaled Italy in all forms of art - painting, music, poetry, drama, and every conceivable industrial art, and they tried to reflect that in their selections for this yearbook. The member who wrote the forward remarked that "the architecture of Spain is more supple and adaptable than any that I know." One of the most desirable and informative titles of the series.
