Overview

Few architects have had a vision of architecture as provocative as that of Claude-Nicolas Ledoux. In 1847 Daniel Rame assembled 300 plates by Ledoux in two volumes. The Rame edition is now scarce, but has been reproduced here in a one-volume format.

Princeton Architectural Press's Reprint Series was established in 1981 to make rare volumes on architecture available to a wider audience. The books' beautiful reproductions and finest quality printing and binding match those of the originals, while their 9-by-12-inch format makes them accessible and affordable. New introductions bring a modern voice to these classic texts, updating them to become invaluable contemporary resources. These critically acclaimed books are an essential addition to any library.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is an attractive and affordable edition of a work of immense contemporary and historical significance. Joael Sanders, Design Book Review
Library Journal
Published in conjunction with Columbia University's Avery Library, this is a facsimile of the famous 1847 Rame edition of architect Ledoux's designs. Originally produced in two volumes, this edition combines all 125 plates (plus text) of Ledoux's plans for a utopian city. As originals are rare and pricey, this offers the same information at an affordable price.
