My first comment was on the post Argument_68, which was about the book “A book of architecture” written by James Gibbs.
“Hi! I came upon your book because I looked in the search engine for “list of plates”. When I started reading this text about your book, I realised our books have a lot in common, super interesting book by the way:). My book, “Ruins of the palace of the emperor Diocletian at Spalatro” written by Robert Adam doesn’t have a list of contents, but rather a list of plates. Plates, are what we nowadays would say Illustrations. Same as in your book, my book basically consists of illustrations. Our authors also have a lot in common, they were important British architects.”
My second comment was on the post Xenotheka_108.
“Hi. I came upon this post of your book because I looked in the word search engine after the word neoclassical. My book “Ruins of the palace of the emperor Diocletian at Spalatro in Dalmatia” was written by Robert Adam, a very important neoclassical architect of the time. You mention in this post that you came upon the book “Architect Theory” written by Mallgrave, and that you think it was written to prepare the reader for the neoclassical and modern theories of Architecture. I wonder if this book maybe mentions one of the neoclassical theories of Architecture of Robert Adams.”
