Romantic Castles and Palaces: As Seen and Described by Famous Writers
by Esther Singleton
Publisher: Dodd, Mead & Company 1901
This is a collection of essays on forty-eight pretty spectacular castles and palaces from around the world. The authors are Sir Walter Scott, Alexandre Dumas, Robert Louis Stevenson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and many more. The pictures were taken before the book was published in 1901. How these structures appeared over 100 years ago is of some interest, for comparison with their modern appearance.

by Graham Livesey - University of Calgary Press
This volume examines eight topics related to the contemporary urban domain. The author employs powerful geographic and literary concepts such as space, narrative, and metaphor to interpret the often bewildering complexity of the post-modern city.

Architecture has been described very truly as the printing press of all ages. This book is an excellent and essential reference and a treasure trove of architectural history for architects or anyone interested in architecture through the ages.
by Claude Fayette Bragdon - A. A. Knopf
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.
