Description:

Comprising thirty-one maps at a metric scale of 1:1,250 and a descriptive catalogue, The Monuments of Historic Cairo marks the first time that the city's significant architectural heritage has been mapped in ground plan within the present-day urban context. The work surveys an area of nearly six square kilometers, stretching from the city's northern walls southward to the Mosque of Ibn Tulun and the Citadel. It documents an extraordinary variety of historically important monuments, and includes street patterns that have now disappeared but that are crucial for understanding how the city has developed over the course of more than a thousand years. The catalogue provides historical information about more than 500 key buildings situated in the historic core of Cairo (one of the first cities inscribed on the World Heritage list), and includes scholarly bibliographical references, as well as details of each building's conservation history. More than 200 buildings are documented here for the first time. The Monuments of Historic Cairo records the city's urban fabric and its architectural treasures, enhancing our understanding of the morphology and architecture of one of the world's great historic cities. This volume is part of the American Research Center in Egypt Conservation series. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description The American University in Cairo Press, New York, NY, 2005. Hardcover. Slate gray cloth, 250 pp., plus map pages, BW illus. and maps within text.; weighs 5 lbs. This book "has proved more ambitious than any of us, including its author, originally envisioned; its introduction traces the history of how Cairo has been imagined and represented over the course of five hundred years; the maps themselves document not only the registered monuments that lie within the district as well as their context; they also show nearly 150 unregistered, historically important buildings. The accompanying catalogue describes these monuments and, for the first time, brings together more than a century of scholarly research into this architectural heritage; it traces the conservation of many of these buildings by the Comite de Conservation de l'Art Arabe, as well as by institutions that have sustained the Comite's mission of architectural preservation." (foreword). VG (Ex-art library with labels and bookplate and pocket and few marks; no dj; otherwise clean.). Seller Inventory # 150131
