"Covering all regions of France, from Avignon's Palace of the Popes to Versailles' Petit Trianon, and all periods of French architecture, from the Roman theater at Orange to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, this volume examines more than 60 of France's most important architectural landmarks. David Hanser, professor of architecture at Oklahoma State University, describes the features, functions, and historical importance of each structure. Besides identifying location, style, architects, and periods of initial construction and major renovation, the cross-referenced and illustrated entries also highlight architectural and historical terms explained in the Glossary and conclude with a useful listing of further readings. The volume also offers reference lists of entries by location, architectural style, and time period, as well as a general bibliography, a subject index, and a detailed introductory overview of French architecture."--BOOK JACKET.
