The cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris is one of the jewels of the French capital and one of Europe's masterpieces of Gothic architecture. This book describes how the structure derives from a series of progressive building projects begun in the 12th century and erected over the foundations of an ancient cathedral. It recounts in detail the history of the present building's construction and its restoration in the 19th century, paying particular attention to the abundant sculpture, especially the remnants of the 12th and 13th centuries which are now preserved in the Musee de Cluny, and the spectacular stained-glass windows.
