Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879) is widely recognized as the most astute and influential architectural theorist of his era. His greatest work is the ten-volume Descriptive dictionary of French architecture from the 11th to the 16th century (Dictionnaire raisonne de l'architecture francaise du XIeme au XVIeme siecle). For the first time, the four most important essays have been collected and translated into English. These essays treat the history of French architecture, the principles of construction, the relationship between style and architecture, and the art of restoration. Annotation c.
