The definitive publication of the Temple of Apollo at Bassai, in the NW Peloponnese, this is one of four volumes representing the culmination of years of study by Professor Fred Cooper of the University of Minnesota and other scholars throughout the world. An identifiable work of Iktinos, the architect of the Parthenon, the building exhibits numerous unusual and uncanonical features that heralded a revolution in Greek architectural design. Volume III contains the catalogue of drawings of the measured blocks; reproductions of 19th- and 20th-century drawings and unpublished photographs, as well as photographs of significant blocks; and facsimiles of the pages concerned with Bassai from Carl Haller's field notebook.
