1899 The Seven Lamps of Architecture
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Leather Binding
In a half calf binding with marbled boards, paste downs and end papers. Top edge gilt. Illustrated with a frontispiece and 13 further plates. Collated complete. The Seven Lamps of Architecture is an essay, first published in 1849 and written by English art critic and theorist John Ruskin. The 'lamps' of the title are Ruskin's principles of architecture, which he later enlarged upon in The Stones of Venice. This essay helped to summarise the thoughts of the Gothic Revival movement, and was a great popular success.
In a half calf binding. Externally very smart, with just a little rubbing to the raised bands of the spine and to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, but with the odd spot throughout.
Very Good Indeed
