Scottish writer James Fergusson created an historical and critical comparative survey of architecture in his 1855 "Handbook of Architecture." This work was reissued 10 years later in a much more extended form under the title of "The History of Architecture." The chapters on Indian architecture, which had been covered at disproportionate length in the "Handbook," were removed from the "History," and the whole of subject treated more fully in this separate volume, which first appeared in 1876. Though most of the book discusses Indian architecture, small sections cover Burma, Siam (Thailand), Java (Indonesia), Cambodia and China.
