Reviews

"A much-needed index to the illustrations in standard books on world architecture. More than 7,200 architectural works in some 100 books are indexed here by site, architect, architectural type, and by names and alternative names of works. The citations indicate the type of illustration to be found: interior or exterior views, plans, sections, or elevations. Because the majority of the books indexed are from well-known publishers' monographic series, including Abrams's "History of World Architecture" and Braziller's "The Great Ages of World Architecture" and from such standard works as the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of World Art, sources should be widely available, and this index will be a real time saver for both librarians and scholars. Teague's index has been carefully arranged and thoughtfully produced, printed on paper meeting the Permanent Paper Standard issued by NISO. Highly recommended both for large public and for upper-division undergraduate and university libraries."-Choice ?A much-needed index to the illustrations in standard books on world architecture.
