Preservar los puentes. Historia de la conservación patrimonial de la ingeniería civil en España (siglo XVI-1936). New publication

The latest addition to the Juanelo Turriano Collection on the History of Engineering, now available, is Daniel Crespo Delgado’s book entitled Preservar los puentes. Historia de la conservación patrimonial de la ingeniería civil en España (siglo XVI-1936) [Conserving bridges: history of the conservation of Spain’s civil engineering heritage, sixteenth century to 1936].

Building on exhaustive archivist and bibliographic research, this book addresses the history, largely ignored to date, of the conservation of Spain’s civil engineering heritage. In its vast range from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century, it describes known as well as many unknown interventions on emblematic works. This valuable contribution to the history of heritage conservation and restoration in Spain constitutes further acknowledgement of the country’s extraordinary civil engineering legacy.

Art historian Dr Daniel Crespo Delgado is a Fundación Juanelo Turriano research fellow. He has authored a number of monographs and articles, in particular on Enlightenment culture and the Modernist definition of progress and development.
