Leave it to the French to get that intellectual framework just right.

John F. Ptak

Yes indeedy. I've seen this here and there--defining terms and establishing what one means when using the term "x-something"--but i'm not pulling up any examples in my brain...I mean of course in works on architecture and art and such, not in the sciences. It would take another 130/140 years or so to add what we take as a "given" element--using comparative sizes to render a building in their true relation to another building in side-by-side illustrated discussion. Putting everything into a common scale. That part is odd.
