When it was completed in 1889, the Eiffel Tower was the highest structure in the world, measuring 300 meters (984 feet). Built for the World's Fair, it was initially granted a 20-year permit; this permit was thankfully extended and now the Eiffel Tower is one of the world's most famous structures, having become practically synonymous with Paris itself and receiving more than six million visitors annually. This XL reprint explores the design and construction of this remarkable building; published in 1900 as a large folio by Gustave Eiffel himself in a limited edition of 500 copies, the original was never sold on the market but given and donated by Eiffel. Featuring 53 double-page plates of technical drawings explaining the design as well as 11 photographs of the construction, the book reveals the complex and fascinating process of bringing the tower to life. Also included is a map depicting the entire area visible from the top of the tower.
