Princeton Architectural Press's Reprint Series was established in 1981 to make rare volumes on architecture available to a wider audience. The books' beautiful reproductions and finest quality printing and binding match those of the originals, while their 9-by-12-inch format makes them accessible and affordable. New introductions bring a modern voice to these classic texts, updating them to become invaluable contemporary resources. These critically acclaimed books are an essential addition to any library.
Few architects have had a vision of architecture as provocative as that of Claude-Nicolas Ledoux. In 1847 Daniel Rame assembled 300 plates by Ledoux in two volumes. The Rame edition is now scarce, but has been reproduced here in a one-volume format.
