] ?MYCONOS ? Ile de l Egee, Cyclades, Greece. Price: 95.00

R. TOURTEs Book on Myconos is the architects and artists delight, many years out of print.
A 1952 publication, it is a systematic architectural study of Myconos and Delos (CycladicArchitecture) .
With almost 120 drawings, pp64, size 10x 7?25x17.5 cm) It is a piece of "Architectural Poetry",critics say. Also, see pp22Le Poeme Des Cheminees. The French text is a literary narration covering tradition, custom, history, with plenty of cross-references to : Homer , Hesiod, Pindar, Hugo, Gourmont, Flaubert, Ludwig , etc.

This Book is, certainly, a lot more than a Tourist Guide.

Condition: Book&Album as issued (50 years ago).First and only Edition,
Unused, Rare.
