    Book details


I ntroduction. It is an attempt to convey in a succinct form information as to measures in force for the safeguarding of ancient buildings and other objects of historical and artistic interest: for the maintenance of a fitting aesthetic standard in the architecture of towns: and for the preservation of the natural beauties of rural districts. The method pursued is to state in the various sections of the first part of the book the problems connected with monument administration, and then in the second part to convey some idea of the treatment of such problems in the past in the different countries of Europe, and of the solutions which at the present time are being essayed. For well-nigh a century past some of these countries have been taking stock of their national assets in this department, and devising the best measures they could think of for their protection: while within the last few years in Germany, France, A ustria, Belgium, Holland, I taly, Spain, Portugal, and other lands, there has been a renewed activity in all the agencies of preservation, of which we in this country would do well to take account. In the year 1902 alone, no fewer than four Monument A cts were passed in European legislatures, and at this moment in A ustria, Bavaria, Prussia, Spain, and some other countries, laws on the subject are under consideration. In Germany, which is now taking the lead, there has been held for the last five years an annual congress exclusively devoted to monument questions, and to these meetings the various German states have sent ofificial representatives.
