“‘Second only in importance to the churches and religious buildings come the military and domestic buildings of the Gothic period (Fig. 7).”

A perspective view of a complex house with a courtyard. Jacques cœur, or James Coeur, was the richest private citizen in Europe, a French merchant, but seems to have been brought down and ruined by some at the court. See the entry for James Coeur in the 1812 dictionary of biography.
