This is the classic resource for authentic Mediterranean and Spanish architecture, compiled in 1929 by the pioneer architect of its revival style. Its 144 plates display many country and city dwellings, interiors as well as exteriors, and architectural, garden, and ironwork details. Sections focus on roofs, street scenes, cornices and chimneys. There are Old World doorways, window grilles, balconies, and cornices. Its patios, fountains, and gates can provide inspiration for today's builders seeking to create authentic landscape design. Many of the photographic views are identified with the town name and specific features they clearly display.

Richard S. Requa, A.I.A., was instrumental in establishing the Spanish style of architecture to new buildings in California during the first decades of the 20th century. Living and working in San Diego, he helped to establish Spanish and Mediterranean styles into the building plans for the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition. By traveling to and photographing buildings in the Mediterranean region, he introduced authentic details, which he also published in this and other books, including Architectural Details: Spain and the Mediterranean (Schiffer: 2005).
