Shelves: architecture , history. Bannister Fletcher's achievement was to create a copious reference to thousands of the major architectural works of Western Europe, in scaled drawings, photographs and summary text, thus furnishing a means of comparison - that is the key word - of building with building, style with style, period with period.
This is what gives the book its uniqueness. The book is immense yet, for the sake of avoiding an ever heavier tome, the author focused his lens on the architectural inheritance of the West. Even with this limitation the book is astonishing in its range and detail. Its exhaustive and periodic approach, though on the face of it simplistic and by today's standards unsophisticated, has nevertheless served generations of architects and architectural students well.
Part 2, 'Non-Historical', deals with the East — just 46 pages. Add another edition? Copy and paste this code into your Wikipedia page. Need help? See what's new with book lending at the Internet Archive.
