Sankt-Peterburg: ocherki arkhitekturnoi istorii goroda: t. 1, Klassicheskii gorod (St. Petersburg: Sketches of the City’s Architectural History, vol. 1, The Classical City)

St. Petersburg: Kolo, 2009. Sewn cl. The richness of the visual material—plans, drawings, archival and new photographs—together with a text that draws together many strands of architectural history from the first settlements at the mouth of the Neva to the baroque and neoclassical ensembles of the eighteenth and early nineteenth century mean that this volume will be a basic source on the construction and architectural history of one of Europe’s great cities. City planning and the design of interiors receive due attention among the descriptions and analyses of building styles. The author compares the original design for St. Petersburg with conception of contemporary European cities and cities of ancient Greece and Rome, tracing some of the ideas that inspired Peter the Great, his successors, and their architects, Western European and Russian. 464 pp., 6 1/2 x 8 5/8 ins., 472b-&-w illus., sewn cl., Rus., , Item #3914
