What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

The first edition of the first volume only of architect and designer Augustus Pugin's illustrated volume providing examples of the ancient Gothic edifices of England, illustrated with plans and elevations, and with 'historical and descriptive accounts'.

Illustrated with seventy-five plates. Collated, complete.

The first series only of this work, with a second and third series published in the following years. These volumes were considered to be the standard reference works for Gothic architecture for at least the next century.

A wonderfully illustrated volume from the architect remembered for his role in the Gothic Revival style of architecture, with his work culminating in the construction of the iconic clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, housing Big Ben.

Rebacked, in the publisher's original cloth binding with boards restored and back strip laid down. Discolouration and minor losses to spine label. Retaining the original endpapers.
