Dutch Classicist architecture : a survey of Dutch architecture, gardens, and Anglo-Dutch architectural relations from 1625 to 1700

Delft, Delft University Press, 1980
(24 cm), xxx (2), 615 (1) pp., 458 illustrations. Publisher’s cloth, pictorial dust jacket. - Describes the influence of Dutch architecture on English architects (notably Robert Hooke, John Webb, and Christopher Wren). The survey emerged from the author’s catalogue raisonné of Dutch 17th-century architectural books and prints (redacted here as Chapter 25, “The Printed Sources”), and the author is generous in his assessments of the influence of these publications (”one should not underrate the importance of the loose sheets with engraved buildings…”, p.211). ¶ Minor defects to dust jacket; otherwise a very good, unmarked copy.
