Australian Architects: Philip Cox
Dean, John (Editor)
ISBN: 0909724539
Red Hill, ACT Intl Specialized Book Service Inc 1985  1985 
  4to softcover 95pp colour & b/w illus. very good, owner's names on fep. / very good d/w. Born in Sydney, in 1939, Cox was educated at the University of Sydney, and early in his career, particularly with domestic works, he displayed a sensitivity for the materials and environment of Australia characteristic of designers associated with "the Sydney School" style. After establishing his own firm in 1967 Cox pursued his interest in architectural history with numerous publications to his credit, including Colonial Architecture of Australia (Melbourne, 1978) and Rude TimberBuildings ofAustralia (London, 1969). His work displays the pragmatism and understatement characteristic of much Australian work * Current projects show more dramatic uses of space and less obvious historic overtones. The National Sports Stadium, Canberra (1977) is an example.Australian Architects -Philip Cox is an attractive, slim paperbound volume comprised of several essays about Cox's work augmented by abundant illustrations which survey the architect's major projects. The photographs, some in color, are of good quality, and numerous plans, sections, and elevations should fulfill the demands of users of this kind of book. Appending the text is a useful, comprehensive bibliography of writings by and about Cox. This book should prove to be a valuable resource on a significant contemporary architect.

Classical Architecture in Renaissance Europe: 1419-1585
Millar, John Fitzhugh
ISBN: 0934943060
Thirteen Colonies Press April 1987  1987 
  square 4to softcover 241pp b/w illus. very good. This book contains text and elevation drawings and ground plans of nearly 400 classical buildings in Europe from 1419 to 1585. it shows the spread of classical architecture outwards from Florence and Rome to and area stretching from Portugal to Moscow, from Wales to Romania, from Scotland to Yuogoslavia, from Denmark to Malta and from Poland to Spain. It examines works by over 160 architects, including the more familiar Brunelleschi, Alberti, Bramante, the San Gallos, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Giulio Romano, Serlio, Palladio, Vignola, Herrera, and De L'Orme, as well as many undeservingly obscure figures, for example the previously unknown Flamish architect Hendrik van Paesschen (or van de Passe) emerges as an astonishing Palladio of the North. In the Appendix are biographical sketches of all the architects and and extensive Illustrated glossary of architectural terms. This book appeals to expert and layman alike and will be particularly helpful to students in art and architectural history courses, as well as to tourists planning visits to parts of Europe.
