The triple issue includes an introductory article by Mary Roberts and Samuel Williams, “Introduction: A Monumental Book: Ottoman Architecture at the 1873 Vienna World’s Fair” and translation into English by Gay McAuley (Royal Holloway) of the French text Ottoman Architecture (Constantinople, 1873), produced for the 1873 Vienna World Fair and written by Victor Marie de Launay and others. The special issue includes this history of Ottoman architecture that has essays on eight individual monuments, a technical dossier, a theory of Ottoman ornament and 190 illustrated plates.
