Edited and photographed by Yukio Futagawa, this seventh instalment in a series of 10 has been republished after 40 years.
Taking Germany as its subject, it examines how settlements in this region of Europe have remained relatively intact and are therefore also more studied compared to other countries. This volume features Rothenburg, Goslar, and Celle, towns that today still retain the forms of settlement dating from the 15th to 18th centuries nearly perfectly. Established in medieval times as defensive settlements, the historical core of these three towns is impressively well preserved, a fact documented here in detail through photographs, diagrams, and maps.
