Lefèvre-Pontalis, Eugène

L'ARCHITECTURE RELIGIEUSE DANS L'ANCIEN DIOCÈSE DE SOISSONS AU XIe ET AU XIIe SIÈCLE. 1-2.

ansB17008

Paris 1894-96 (-1897). 40x29. IV+IV+240; + IV+228 pp. + 98 beautifully produced plates (two folding) with guard tissues (numbered I-XCIII plus five plates numbered IIII bis, IV bis, XI bis, XXIV bis, and XXVI bis). More than 900 elevations, detail drawings and plans, and 8 full-page photographs. A pristine copy in unopened text sheets and loose plates as issued in four installments, each in their original printed paper covers. Kept in a half cloth portfolio with tie-strings. From Johnny Roosval's library with his stamp on inside of the portfolio's front board.

First edition of this pioneering thesis on the distinct type of religious architecture that sprang up in the ancient diocese of Soissons in the 11th and 12th centuries. Lefèvre-Pontalis examined the monuments on site and produced detailed plans and drawings, provided with descriptions and comparisons with similar monuments. Arguing that ogival (pointed) vaulting was introduced into Christian architecture at Soissons, the thesis is also an investigation into the origins of this revolutionizing constructional feature and of Gothic architecture as such.
