Description - History of Ottoman Architecture by Godfrey Goodwin

This survey of Ottoman architecture treats the subject chronologically and within its historical perspective, making reference to Byzantine, Persian and Selcuk examples. There is a discussion of the effects of conquests, religions and social organization, and alongside the descriptions of mosques are studies of the layout and function of the buildings which came to be grouped around the mosques - schools, baths, hostels, kitchens, fountains, mausolea, and shops. Seeking to appeal to those interested in Islamic art as well as architectural history, buildings are described with a minimum of technical terminology. A glossary of Turkish words is provided and there is a chronological table listing Ottoman rulers and historical events.
