Jaap E. Abrahamse
PhD dissertation:
The grand extension of Amsterdam: city development and urbanism in the seventeenth century.

All aspects of a city come to life in this book. The practice of urban planning in Amsterdam has often been investigated from an art-historical point of view, but not on the basis of a fundamental examination of archives, as is the case with the dissertation of Jaap Abrahamse.
