The book, Morelia en el Espacio y en el Tiempo, was needed and came at the right time, not only for students of architecture, but also for historians, painters, sculptors and anyone who has a sensibility for conservation and restoration of Mexico's heritage the former city Valladolid and now Morelia. Since man, a social animal, has tended to live in groups, Esparanza Ramirez Romero, a diligent historian, has come to the defense of the city and the architecture, as these elements are essential source for the social economic, cultural history and political foundation of Morelia. Family, economics, and defense has force smaller communities to become larger, gradually transforming the landscape and giving a new expression to the geography. The historical value of Morelia becomes a contrast of aesthetic anomalies, which was the lack of coordination between the surrounding space and artwork which was created. This work is a history of a city from its foundation to present day and great use to not only historians, but city planners and architects.
Light edge wear, corners bumped else a very good copy.
