TO THE PRESENT DAY.

THANKS TO SOUND ADVICE GIVEN TO HIM EARLY ON BY HIS PHOTOGRAPHER BROTHER, MARCELL (ONLY USE LEICA CAMERAS AND KODACHROME FILM, WHICH IS ARCHIVAL), SEIDLERS HOBBY QUICKLY DEVELOPED INTO A PASSION AND, FINALLY, AN IMPRESSIVE ARCHIVE OF WORLD ARCHITECTURE. INCLUDING, OF COURSE, MANY OF THE WORLDS MOST FAMOUS ARCHITECTURAL STRUCTURES, SEIDLERS PHOTOGRAPHS ILLUSTRATE THE HISTORY AND STYLE--COUNTRY BY COUNTRY--OF ARCHITECTURE IN EUROPE, THE MIDDLE EAST, ASIA, AND THE AMERICAS.

DIVIDED INTO CHAPTERS BY COUNTRY, EACH WITH A BRIEF INTRODUCTION OUTLINING ITS ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY, GRAND TOUR OFFERS ARMCHAIR TRAVELERS, STUDENTS, ARCHITECTURE BUFFS, AND HISTORIANS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BROWSE THE BUILDINGS OF THE WORLD THROUGH ONE MANS PHOTOGRAPHS--THE FRUITS OF A PASSIONATE, HALF-CENTURY ENDEAVOR.
