1865-1867 A History Of Architecture in All Countries
What Our Customers Say...
Rebacked in a quarter calf binding, with the original backstrip and cloth laid down to the spine and the boards. Profusely illustrated a frontispiece and a title page vignette to each volume, and over 1,700 further engravings accompanying the text. James Fergusson (1808-1886) was an architectural historian. His book on Indian architecture led him to undertake the whole subject of architecture in The Illustrated Handbook of Architecture, published in 1855 in two volumes. This work was reissued later in extended form in three volumes; this is Volume I (1865) and Volume II (1867) of this three-volume work. Volume I includes Fergusson's definition of architecture, technical principles, ethnography in relation to architecture, ancient architecture and Christian architecture. Volume II continues the chapters on Christian architecture and goes on to explore Pagan architecture.
Rebacked in a quarter calf binding. Externally smart, with small marks to the boards, some wear to the extremities and a little rubbing to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean with the odd spot to the first and last few pages.
