"Covering the epochs of human achievements that span more than 5,000 years, this fascinating reference offers a unique tour through the entire history of architecture. It contains clear, concise definitions of over 5,000 terms encountered in historic architecture. Subjects are treated in extensive detail. There are, for example, more definitions in classical architecture than in any other previous publication. Topics have been culled from virtually all periods and cultures ... Ancient, Greek and Hellenistic, Roman, Early Christian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Islamic, Mesoamerican, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Modern. The Sourcebook contains definitions of virtually every term ever likely to be encountered in the study of historic architecture, many of them unusual terms such as ... apophyge, bartizan, guilloche, inglenook, kaya-buki, meshrebeeyeh, periaktos, quoning, skewback, xyst, ying pi, zwinger. The culmination of many years of research through sources long out of print, the Sourcebook brings together an unprecedented collection of over 2,000 line drawings that richly illustrate significant aspects of architectural styles. Where appropriate, it groups illustrations together for dramatic and illuminating comparisons, as, for example, such terms as capital, door, and window. It provides unusual cutaway views and plans of many of the greatest architectural achievements of all time, and includes close-up details not easily seen on actual buildings or sites. All of the Sourcebook's line drawings clearly show intricate details that are simply not visible on even the most sharply focused photograph."--Publisher's description
