Fergusson, a Scottish writer on architecture, defined the period of modern architecture as that of revivals and imitations of ancient styles, which began with the Renaissance. First appearing in 1862, his work discusses secular and religious architecture in Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, England, the British colonies (including Canada), Germany, northwestern Europe, Russia, India, Turkey, the USA and Latin America. He then includes special sections on theatres, bridges and railway stations, and military engineering.
