Physical Sciences. Even the architecture of nineteenth-century bookstores has been examined Bouvier, c ; Gaudard, Pierre Pinon has presented a detailed consideration of the publishing activities of Louis-Pierre Baltard in an article in the Construction Savante collection — a topic he had touched on previously in his monograph on Baltard and his more famous son, Victor Pinon , , Most work has focused on content in a traditional sense.
Not everyone who reads this detective story of a dissertation — which is remarkable also from the perspective of its graphic design — will be convinced that the author has solved the mystery, but few will ever look at that iconic image in the same way again. Architectural historians have increasingly tried to take on this challenge, and have done so in a variety of ways.
Laurence Chevallier has also studied the library of the Bordelais architect Jean-Baptiste Dufart Chevallier , , while Annie Jacques has examined the place of Renaissance treatises in French libraries more generally Jacques , This work has focused mainly on periodicals and fiction.
In , Nathalie Sarrabezolles offered the first published survey of architectural coverage in the French press between and Sarrabezolles, Delamair Lemas, , the project of Jean Antoine Morand for Lyon Chuzeville, , and finally the mass of other projects for Paris that appeared in countless journals, pamphlets, and books during the eighteenth century Lemas, , ; Wittman, b , , , together constituted a sustained collective attempt to devise a new theoretical model for the city in which public benefit would constitute the ultimate goal.
One could say much the same about the even more plentiful proposals for the reform of Paris that appeared up to , by which time the debate had turned into a contest between different political definitions of the public good Backouche, ; Bourillon, ; Moret, ; Papayanis, , The one area where recent research seems to be lacking, surprisingly, is the second half of the nineteenth century, where surely more remains to be said about how, with the eclipse of easy generalizations about the collectivity, print functioned in increasingly refractory debates about power and the politics of urban space.
see url Before long, periodicals appeared that specifically offered themselves for such purposes, and were immediately made use of, especially by younger architects Wittman, b. As we have seen, several scholars have explored the crucial role played by print in helping consolidate the emergence of the modern architectural profession during the nineteenth century Lipstadt, Mendelsohn, ; Lipstadt, ; Saboya, ; Bouvier, Obviously it provided them with access to a vastly expanded, constantly evolving corpus of information.
But how did the very existence of this public sphere of print affect their perceptions of society and, by extension, of the function of their art within it? Not with the same confidence we have in revealing the contents of a library or the editorial proclivities of a journal, but connections can be made. Daniel Rabreau, as one of the longest-running and most persistent advocates of a more culturally oriented history of French architecture, has for decades been approaching his material with the awareness that architects from the later eighteenth century conceived of their relationship to society and the public in new ways, and therefore saw the role of their art differently than their forbears had done.
Ultimately, though, there are countless ways of using the culture of print to get at the rich and important question of what the translation of architecture into printed forms meant beyond the immediate world of the architectural profession. Some inspiration might perhaps be drawn from recent work on English architecture.

Myers presents her project as an attempt to reclaim architecture from the discourses of architectural history; to reassert that, while architecture may have been a language for architects and connoisseurs, it formed narratives for everyone else. That is a precedent worth thinking about. Lewine eds. Nelson, Margaret Olin eds.
