Includes a Preface to the English-language edition by Gaudi expert, historian and educator George R. Collins, an Author's Preface by personal friend and mentee, Cesar Martinell, Sources, ten separate Appendices including Gaudi's school transcript, four Indices including a chronology of works, and 51 chapters in three parts: His Life, His Theories, and His Work. From the Collins Preface: "This is the most compete, detailed study that has yet been made of the architect Antonio Gaudi. Its special value resides in the familiarity with which the author, as a young man, knew Gaudi during the last decades of his life, and in the perspective which Cesar Martinell-who was both a practicing architect and an experienced historian-gave to the remarks which he and others heard from Gaudi's lips. The book also contains a wealth of new data and illustrations which the author had unearthed in recent years and made available here for the first time." As much a biography as a monograph, this book acts as supplementary material to all the previous major works on Gaudi's career, and as a contextual guide to his work and ideas.
