    This dramatic history of the alluring metropolis serves only to enhance its status as one of the most fabled cities in the history of civic existence. The author keys the central excitement of Barcelona's Gothicarchitecture, observing it as a complete medieval city enclosed in an enormous 19th-century grid of avenues, blocks, and housing that also frames Europe's most remarkable Art Nouveau palaces, apartments, and offices. Written on a grand scale, this is a study, a passion that never disappoints. Bibliography, index. B&W photos & illus. 575p.
