Vitruvius Britannicus: The Classic of Eighteenth-Century British Architecture by Colen Campbell
English | May 17th, 2013 | ASIN: B00A3YEL6W, ISBN: 0486447995 | 288 pages | EPUB | 376.25 MB

A consortium of British architects and their patrons rebelled against the early eighteenth century's Baroque excesses and turned instead toward the Renaissance works of Andrea Palladio for inspiration. These Neo-Palladians guided the course of British architecture toward classical principles, and the Vitruvius Britannicus (British Vitruvius) reflects their vision. A sumptuous collection of magnificent copperplate engravings, it depicts great English country houses and public buildings.
