About this Item

83 pages of text plus 71 b/w photo illus. After the breakup of the Guptas empire, a distinctive architectural style was developed in the Kathiawar peninsula of southwest Gujarat under two local dynasties, from the mid sixth century to the mid tenth. The numerous stone temple remains show a preference for strongly architectonic designs with little sculptural enrichment. Outside of this general agreement, wide variations existed in ground plans and superstructures. The book brings together information which has never before been presented in this comprehensive way, much of it unpublished. A systematic analysis of all major features used is supplemented by careful descriptions of the individual temples. This double approach, which emphasises the logic of the stylistic sequence, makes the book the first truly scientific study of an important phase of Indian architectural history. Chapters: Architectural background - The Discoveries - Ground Plans - The Superstructure - Classification and Chronology Postsript and glossary. Hardcover with jacket & protective paper slipcase. In fine condition. 12.25 by 9.25 inches. Supplementum XXVI. Bookseller Inventory # 2362
