I started searching with a word in the title and most important topic of the book: column. i searched for column with architecture as the topic of conversation an Architecture Library as Alices brain. but unfortunately nothing usable appeared. Books with topics from autopoiesis to politics or different theories appeared, additionally there wasn’t much text, so the topics were really different to mine.i also searched for Dacian war, Trojans, Rome, Pietro santo bartoli, engraving, louis xiv. There wasnt a lot about this certain topics.
The book which is similar is „A History of Architectural Theory“. There are as well as in my book parts with loads of engravings. The engravings are very lively and detailed as in my book.
One of the books which in my opinion is even more similar to my book is: Zorach, Virtual Tourist in Renaissance Rome. It has the same topic about architecture in Rome. It contains major monument and antiquities in Rome like my book, where there the topic about one major monument, and its more specific a column.
And the Architectural competitions from Mattie is similar in the way that it also deals with column in the architectural composition. I mean not as much as in my book, but there is the column as well.
Actually i found Alice really difficult. Sometimes the texts in Alice sounded pretty similar but as soon as you were reading about the summary of the book, the main topic was totally different. Often there wasnt even a book or it was totally different from the beginning. So in my opinion it was really difficult to find similar books. I wouldnt use Alice that much, because it was pretty hard for me and took a long time. I would recommend Xenotheka and will use that in future.
