An Illustrated Atlas of Old Warsaw
The Atlas by Robert Marcinkowski is a fascinating journey through Warsaw's dramatic last century. The author, through his scrupulous precision and attention to detail, was able to bring forth a unique collection of data showing the history of Warsaw buildings in the 20th century. The particular sheets, based on the famous Lindley maps, illustrate, in a multi-layer way, the buildings from before 1900: the ones which have survived till now, and those (forming a vast majority) not existing anymore, then the buildings raised in 1901-1939, and also the history of individual structures (either reconstructed, or torn down after the war, demolished during the war, etc.). The Lindley maps from the turn of the 19th century are matched by reproductions of postcards from the author's collection, which illustrate wonderfully, together with their descriptions, the picture presented on the multicolored maps. The whole work will not only satisfy the expert, but will be enjoyed by every lover of Warsaw history. (Jaroslaw Zielinski, Warsaw Architecture Historian)
