Allan Braham's comprehensive management of this brilliant and sophisticated period introduces the readers towards the major structures, designers, and architectural patrons during the day. Simultaneously, it explores the larger determinants of architectural production: the rapid economic growth of Paris and also the primary provincial centers and also the growing interest in enhanced public amenities-theaters, schools, marketplaces, and hospitals. This generously highlighted book supplies a vivid commentary on society and manners in pre-Revolutionary France.
