Description

Valletta – Lost City: Volume 1

This is a unique book that visually documents the Valletta that once was and no longer exists. Through about a thousand images, the Valletta that has changed so radically over the centuries lives again. The collection of antique paintings, engravings and photographs, many exclusive to these volumes and never published before, all theme Valletta through the ages.

This book is not only graphically lavish and a compelling exercise in nostalgia, but is fundamental to the understanding and appreciation of the dramatic evolution of the capital city.

Most of the images come from the collections of the author, but the impressive build-up is also augmented by others from private and public archives. This two-volume work, of which this is the first, is the result of decades-long research.
