The French architect Paul Letarouilly devoted more than 30 years to drawing the churches, palaces and monuments of Renaissance Rome. This student's edition contains almost 200 plates from the five volumes originally published between 1825 and 1882. Accompanied by an informative text by John Barrington Bayley, Letarouilly's lucid plans and elevations provide a systematic overview of the design principles of Michelangelo, Bramante, Bernini and other great architects of the Italian Renaissance. The book includes a useful guide for visitors to Rome.
