Critical acclaim when the hardback edition was published was unanimous. The Architect's Journal proclaimed it "By far the best book on Palladio's influence on English early eighteenth century designs." "It is highly satisfactory," wrote Sir John Summerson, "that these scattered papers, often hard of access, have now been gathered into a beautifully produced and well illustrated volume." Now some of Rudolf Wittkower's most important contributions to architectural history are available in paperback. Written between 1945 and 1969 on the theme of Palladio and his influence in England - especially on Inigo Jones, Burlington and Kent - these thirteen essays give powerful evidence of Professor Wittkower's penetrating mind and careful scholarship. All the original illustrations are included, making a book that is as attractive visually as it is intellectually stimulating.
