Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Written by one of the foremost experts on the subject--Loyer is former architecture critic for L'Oeil and director of the survey of the city's 19th- and 20th-century architecture since 1974 under the sponsorship of the Atelier Parisien d'Urbanism--this extremely important book on 19th-century Paris is copiously illustrated with maps and photographs. The large-format work covers the full range of 19th-century architecture, from the building codes that governed the shapes and appearances of apartment houses to the monumental planning efforts of Haussmann, one of the great urban planners of all time. Though overlapping two previous works that are oriented more toward planning--Norma Evenson's Paris ( LJ 10/15/79) and Anthony Sutcliffe's Autumn of Central Paris (1971)--this is a splendid addition to any library collection.-- Peter Kaufman, Florida A & M Univ., Tallahassee
