Brunelleschi's Dome, Ross King.

Well-written, about design and construction of the dome of the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence in the early 1400's. Largest in the world, uniquely done without interior staging, and the brainchild of a goldsmith; interesting read of architecture and mechanics.
