Architectura moderna; v.4


On the basis of little-known or unpublished archival material and a new examination of surviving buildings, van Tussenbroek (municipal building archeologist, Bureau Monumenten and Archeologie) creates a complex picture of the Netherlandish professional world of the 16th and early 17th centuries. He follows the evolution of the Van Neurenberg family's stone trading business, which expanded northwards to Nijmegen and Dordrecht and became an international trading company. Their subsequent activities reflect the changes in the Dutch building sector during the 17th century. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
