Abstract:

This seventh revised ed. of Nikolaus Pevsner's classic history is presented in an entirely new and attractive style. The format has been enlarged and the nearly 300 illustrations appear next to the passage to which they refer. The final chapter of the Penguin Jubilee ed. has been incorporated, carrying the story from 1914 to the present day, and there are substantial additions on the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries in France as well as many minor revisions. The book tells the story of architecture by concentrating on outstanding buildings, and reads exceedingly well in its concentration and its conbination of warmth and scholarship. -- from Back Cover.
