An architect and architectural theorist, George Edmund Street (1824-81) was one of the key proponents of the 'High Victorian' Gothic style in nineteenth-century Britain. He is best known as the mind behind London's Royal Courts of Justice. Elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1866, Street became its professor of architecture in 1880. In 1874 he received the gold medal of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and he served as the Institute's president in 1881. This two-volume work was first published in 1865, and is reissued here in its 1914 version, edited by the American art historian Georgiana Goddard King (1871-1939), who reminds her readers that Street's guide was pioneering in its time, and remains indispensable to the understanding of the Gothic era in Europe. The work takes the reader on a tour of Spain's most ancient and architecturally important towns and cities.
