Review:

"an excellent resource for interested laypeople as well as professionals in the field...recommended as a ready-reference tool for public, academic, and high-school libraries" - Booklist "a fool-proof guide to understanding architectural elements: Ernest Burden's Dictionary of Architecture is long on illustration, a commendable fact given that most conventional architectural dictionaries many times leave one guessing as to meanings even after repeated readings of definitions. If you're ever a bit fuzzy as to the difference between a spandrel and a pendentive, Burden's 'point-and-shoot' approach and cross-referenced entries may prove invaluable in clearing up such gray areas of the field's nomenclature." - 4 star review on amazon.com

From the Back Cover:

“An excellent resource for interested laypeople as well as professionals in the field . . . recommended as a ready reference tool for public, academic, and highschool libraries.”
