Resumen del Libro
Deluxe edition by renowned architectural historian celebrates 1993 inclusion of the city in UNESCOs World Heritage List. Complements rather than supersedes earlier book by same author, La arquitectura colonial de Coro (1961) (see HLAS 24:1698), with an additional wealth of visual material, including spectacular full-page color photographs of colonial monuments and their environs. Lucid text, both factual and analytical, incorporates material from recent research and argues for a sound policy of historic preservation in the city of Coro. Several architectural plans have been redrawn for this edition and are supplemented with reconstruction drawings and historic photographs –Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
