I purchased this book to serve as a ready reference to Renaissance Florence architecture. The book is a compendium of useful information, well written, and of solid scholarship.

I purchased this book for a research paper I was doing during school. It provided great insight to powerful topics on which I'm intrigued by with every new book that comes out or seeing various pictures of these ancient structures.

This is a very clear and complete survey. I highly recommend this book as an introduction to Renaissance architecture, and as an enjoyable refresher for the seasoned architect who may have forgotten all that was taught in school.
