Reseña del editor
This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

The Seven Lamps of Architecture, written by John Ruskin on a series of lectures use in his lectures. The book is an epic because of its' historical accounts of information given to architects in the past and continues to now and in the future. His use of the English language is superb, where the reader is lost in the beautiful words and the excellent techincal material.
He emphasizes the points of good design that is dependent on a series of seven factors. He also gives example of buildings that are under discussion, the plates are not in the Kindle edition therefore the book must be bought otherwise the reader has to keep googling in order to find his examples. The examples are explained in detail.
The first few pages are slightly boring, but like all good books he dives into the subject and never let up, drowning the reader is good information.
Great Architecture Of The World
Brunelleschi's Dome: How a Renaissance Genius Reinvented Architecture
The Picture History of Great Buildings
Mathematical Excursions to the World's Great Buildings
Indispensable background nowadays regretfully almost forgotten.
1- Sacrifice – Dedication of man's craft to God, as visible proofs of man's love and obedience
2- Truth – Handcrafted and honest display of materials and structure. Truth to materials and honest display of construction were bywords since the serious Gothic Revival had distanced itself from the whimsical "Gothic" of the 18th century; it had been often elaborated by Pugin and others.
3- Power – Buildings should be thought of in terms of their massing and reach towards the sublimity of nature by the action of the human mind upon them and the organization of physical effort in constructing buildings.
4- Beauty – Aspiration towards God expressed in ornamentation drawn from nature, his creation
5- Life – Buildings should be made by human hands, so that the joy of masons and stone carvers is associated with the expressive freedom given them
6- Memory – Buildings should respect the culture from which they have developed
7- Obedience – Obedience to the spirit, values and cannons of and art tradition which is expert, truthful, fertile and honest. No originality for its own sake, but conforming to the finest among existing English values, in particular expressed through the "English Early Decorated" Gothic as the safest choice of style.
If you want to go deeper, read this book and the first two volumes of MODERN PAINTERS. If you go further, you've become a Ruskin fanatic, not a bad thing to be!
