Book of Architecture: An Eighteenth-Century ClassicАвтор:
Dover Publications. Inc.ISBN:
Книга одного из самых уважаемых и влиятельных архитекторов Англии Джеймса Гиббса по классической архитектуре восемнадцатого века.
One of England's most respected and influential architects, James Gibbs was born in Scotland, studied in Rome, and left a legacy of design the world will treasure forever. His legendary 1728 folio, a sprawling gallery of Gibbs's magnificent drawings, perspectives, and blueprints, is a brilliant testimony to his remarkable talent.
Profusely illustrated, the volume features such notable commissions as London's St. Martin in the Fields – the inspiration for many steeple churches of the colonial period in America; St. Mary le Strand, his first public building; Marybone Chapel; The Church of Allhallows in Derby; plus Gibbs's first commission, an addition for King's College at Cambridge.
