The antiqvities of Athens, measvred and delineated by James Stuart( Book )

11 editions published between 1762 and 1979 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James 'Athenian' Stuart and Nicholas Revett??'s monumental Antiquities of Athens was the first accurate survey of ancient Greek architecture ever completed. Based on precise measured drawings done at the sites of the ancient ruins between 1751 and 1754, these books set a new standard for archaeological investigation in the eighteenth century. In doing so, they also transformed our understanding of Greek architecture and???by pointing up differences between Greek and Roman examples??? fundamentally challenged prevailing notions about a universal classical ideal, and fueled the Greek Revival movement that dominated British, European, and American architecture and design for over a century. Originally published in four volumes that appeared between 1762 and 1816, Stuart and Revett??'s masterwork is presented here in its entirety as part of our Classic Reprints series and features a new introduction by scholar Frank Salmon. With its many images of buildings, plans, sculpture, friezes, and decorative objects such as vases, it remains the logical starting point for anyone interested in Athens, Greece, and its influence on the whole history of Western architecture

Istanbul: the column of Constantine and the street Yeniçeriler Caddesi. Engraving attributed to D. Pronti after W. Reveley by Willey Reveley( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The print shows the column of Constantine together with immediately neighbouring buildings and shops, as well as a lively view of the street of Cemberlitas, which was an important centre of the city in 1780s. The Column of Constantine (Turkish: Çemberlitaş Sütunu) is a monumental column constructed on the orders of the Emperor Constantine in 330 AD. It commemorates the declaration that Byzantium (renamed by Constantine as Nova Roma) was the new capital city of the Roman Empire. The shops were destroyed by fire in 1779, therefore the drawing must have been made before that date. The mosque of Beyazit is seen beyond the column
