Focused on Gothic buildings within the Paris Basin, but with occasional excursions, The Creation of Gothic Architecture aims to provide an overall chronology through the study of every available example of the various architectural elements, primarily using photographs, with commentaries, and supported by documents where they exist.
Comprising Volumes 1 and 2, the first part of the study dates buildings between 1170 and 1250 using a single repeatable type of decoration - foliage - and drawing on 288 documents. No jacket.
