More than 25 years have passed since the original publishing of the book Belgrade Architects between 1815 and 1914, written by Divna Đurić-Zamolo, a prominent Serbian historian of architecture. This outstanding historiographical piece, published at the peak of the author's career, summed up her fruitful research into the history of architecture in Serbia's capital. This renowned and very demanded book had long been out of print. It was with this book that the Belgrade City Museum launched a series of re-publications. In contrast to the first edition, published in 1981, in which the illustrations were presented as a set of chronologically organized plates (starting with the oldest buildings and proceeding towards the more recent ones), in the second edition, illustrations accompany text. All of the drawings, photographs and picture postcards are given in their integral form, which significantly contributes to the visual appeal of the book and enables readers to get an idea of how Belgrade looked in the past. Numerous newly added photographs and picture postcards, printed in full colour in the second edition, contribute to the quality of the book. For that reason, the number of pages almost doubled compared to the first edition.
