This title aims at displaying clearly the characteristic features of the architecture of each country by comparing the buildings of each period and by giving due prominence to the influences - geographical, geological, climactic, religious, social, and historical - which have contributed to the formation of particular styles, and which hitherto have not been systematically emphasized.

The analytical and comparative method adopted enables the essentials of individual styles to be easily grasped; thus the character of Gothic is emphasized by comparison with Classic and Renaissance architecture. Each style is considered under five sections 1) Influences - including geographical, climatic, social, geological, religious, and historical 2) Architectural Character 3) Examples 4) Comparative Analysis - plans, walls, openings, roofs, columns, mouldings, ornament and 5) Reference Books.

About Banister Fletcher

Fletcher was born and died in London, where he trained at King's College and University College. He joined his father's practice in 1884, also studying at the Royal Academy Schools, the Architectural Association, and the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. He became a partner in 1889, and on his father's death in 1899 took over the practice, which continued to be called Banister Fletcher & Sons. Fletcher worked closely with his younger brother Herbert Phillips Fletcher (1872–1916) as well as his father. Herbert was also a partner in the family firm and they wrote some books together. He was "regarded as a minor figure in the modernist movement" in his early career, and generally preferred to write rather than design.
