The Story of the Paris Churches

Серия: "-"

1919. Wolff writes in the Preface: Paris Churches, many of them, have an entrancing historical as well as a precious architectural interest. Curiousold legends are often connected with their foundation. I have aimed at giving in concise and simple form their history rather than a mass of architectural detail. Those who have time can study for themselves from personal observation, by far the best way, and with the help of books of reference, the intricacies of the architectural features of the Churches. It is a rich field of study. Many people from habit and knowledge are able to take in at a glance the most salient points of architectural interest. What we all love to know in looking upon and wandering through a grand building which hasstood for ages, are the circumstances of its birth, the course of its growth, the stories connected with it. A wonderful collection of vignettes describing the great churches of Paris. Книга представляет собой репринтное издание 1919 года (издательство "New York Brentano's" ). Несмотря на то, что была проведена серьезная работа по восстановлению первоначального качества издания, на некоторых страницах могут обнаружиться небольшие" огрехи" :помарки, кляксы и т. п.
