The Cours d’Architecture by Charles Augustin D’Aviler (1653–1701) has been one of the most important manuals of the period since its first publication in 1691. In the first comprehensive study of this architectural book, the history of its edition is treated in the same way as the ideal design for a town house or the ornament in interior decoration.

This publication is offered outside Switzerland with the ISBN 978-3-7861-1787-2 by Gebrüder Mann Verlag.
