An outline of European architecture by Nikolaus Pevsner ( Book )
204 editions published between 1942 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 3,961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

The Penguin dictionary of architecture and landscape architecture by John Fleming ( Book )
95 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and held by 3,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For more than thirty years, The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture has been a standard work of reference." "Encyclopedic in breadth, it describes key individuals, styles, movements, materials, and terms from Aalto to Zakharov, from the Acropolis to ziggurats. Major entries range up to several pages in length and include cross references and bibliographies for further reading." "Now renamed The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, this new edition has been completely reworked by John Fleming and Hugh Honour. All entries have been updated as necessary, many new ones have been written, and much greater prominence has now been given to landscape architecture, one of the most dynamic and important growth fields of recent years."--BOOK JACKET

A history of building types by Nikolaus Pevsner ( Book )
47 editions published between 1976 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 1,742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Available again in paperback, this first survey of building types ever written remains an essential guide to vital and often overlooked features of the architectural and social inheritance of the West. Here Nikolaus Pevsner shares his immense erudition and keenly discerning eye with readers curious about the ways in which architecture reflects the character of society. He describes twenty types of buildings ranging from the most monumental to the least, from the most ideal to the most utilitarian. More than seven hundred illustrations illuminate the text. Both Europe and America have been covered with examples chosen largely from the nineteenth century, the crucial period for diversification. Included are national monuments, libraries, theaters, hospitals, prisons, factories, hotels, and many other public buildings; churches and private dwellings have been excluded for practical reasons. The author is concerned not only with the evolution of each type in response to social and architectural change, but also with differing attitudes toward function, materials, and style
