Based on precise measured drawings done at the sites of the ancient ruins between 1751 and 1754, this work set a new standard for archaeological investigation in the eighteenth century. In doing so, they also transformed the understanding of Greek architecture and by pointing up differences between Greek and Roman examples fundamentally challenged prevailing notions about a universal classical ideal and fueled the Greek Revival movement that dominated British, European, and American architecture and design for over a century. With its images of buildings, plans, sculpture, friezes, and decorative objects such as vases, it remains the logical starting point for anyone interested in Athens, Greece, and its influence on the history of Western architecture.~~Rather uncommon in commerce, other than de-accessioned copies from libraries.~~.
