Riassunto: Acclaimed as a masterly exposition of the making of the much quoted, photographed, studied and loved townscapes of Georgian Edinburgh, A. J. Youngson's classic book recreates and brings to life one of the most comprehensive, detailed and remarkable urban expansion programmes ever undertaken. He describes the vigour of the planning debates, the fundraising schemes, the administrative and legislative infrastructure of planning, the construction of public buildings as poles of attraction for speculative building, and all the hopes, quarrels, victories and civic bankruptcy that went into this great experiment.Superbly illustrated with over 160 photographs and line drawings, this is an invaluable work of history and a fascinating account of the shaping of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.This paperback edition of this classic work features a new preface and a handsome new cover design.
A. J. Youngson is former Chairman of the Fine Art Commission Scotland and is Professor Emeritus of Architecture at the University of Edinburgh.
