What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Leather Binding, Rebound, Signed Binding
A complete four volume set of first editions of this account of the domestic architecture of England.
The volumes aim to illustrate the history of architecture in England to add to the national records.
The first volume discusses the architecture of the period from the Conquest to the end of the thirteenth century, this volume is written by T. Hudson Turner and published in 1851.
The second volume continues from the first and discusses the architecture from Edward I. to Richard II., however due to T. Hudson Turner's untimely death the volume and subsequent volumes were completed by the editor of The Glossary of Architecture, John Henry Parker. This volume was thus published in 1853.
The third and fourth volumes complete the set and discuss the architecture from Richard II to Henry VIII, with part one and two making up the third and fourth volumes, both being first published in 1859.
All four volumes are richly illustrated with numerous illustrations of existing remains from original drawings.
