As part of its Classic Reprints series, which includes Stuart and Revett’s Antiquities of Athens and the Pencil Points Reader, Princeton Architectural Press presents a one-volume facsimile of Vatican by French architect Paul Letarouilly, a meticulous sourcebook of the Vatican City that contains everything from building plans and elevations to drawings of doorframes and cornices. First published in 1882, after Letarouilly’s death, Vatican is now credited as a catalyst for the American Renaissance style. The book is introduced by Ingrid Rowland and has 243 black-and-white and 24 color plates.
