Paris: Flammarion, 2008. Paris, Flammarion, 2008. First edition, first printing. 4to. Tan cloth with lettering blind stamped on spine and front board, light taupe endpapers, illustrated throughout, 247 pp. This beautifully illustrated book, written by two authorities on 16th- and 17th-century art and architecture, offers a visual tour of the major styles and trends of baroque architecture throughout Europe and beyond. Through such examples as the undulating facade of Rome's San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane, the lavish succession of rooms in the Palace of Versailles, and the seemingly endless array of columns and windows in the Winter Palace at St. Petersburg, the authors observe how baroque style developed in relation to the particular urban cultures of each nation where it became popular. New in a new dust jacket, protected by a mylar cover.. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. New/New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
