The former Royal Hospital for Seamen, the Queen's House, and Greenwich Park -- one of the most highly prized ensembles in European architecture and landscape -- today comprise the centerpiece of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site. This beautifully illustrated book, based on detailed documentary work and site survey by the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England, is the first to present a thorough architectural and art historical account of the main surviving buildings of the site. New photographs of the buildings complement famous views painted by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century artists, and specially commissioned development drawings illustrate and clarify the often complex evolution of the buildings, which have not until now been well understood. In addition, an archaeological analysis illuminates the discussion of centuries of human alterations to this much-loved landscape.
