A Text-book of the History of Architecture
by Alfred D. F. Hamlin
Publisher: Longmans, Green, & Co. 1906
Number of pages: 492
The aim of this work has been to sketch the various periods and styles of architecture with the broadest possible strokes, and to mention, with such brief characterization as seemed permissible or necessary, the most important works of each period or style. Extreme condensation in presenting the leading facts of architectural history has been necessary, and much that would rightly claim place in a larger work has been omitted here.

This book was written in the scant intervals afforded by the practice of the profession of architecture, so broadened as to include the study of abstract form, the creation of ornament, experiments with color and light, and educational activities.
by Etienne Turpin (ed.) - Open Humanities Press
This volume brings together a provocative series of essays, conversations, and design proposals that intensify the potential of the multidisciplinary discourse developing in response to the Anthropocene thesis for contemporary architecture practice.
