English Architecture: An Illustrated Glossary

By Curl, James Stevens

Markham, Ontario, Canada: Fitzhenry & Whiteside, Limited, 1987. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Clean nicely bound copy. Unmarked pages. remainder mark top edge. Secure boxed packaging! "A spendid and comprehensive guide to understanding our heritage of historic buildings. The importance of old buildings, with their details, craftsmanship, styles and forms, is being ever more appreciated as the need for conservation becomes more acute. So much has been destroyed, and so much more is being eroded by unsuitable alterations. Traditional details are simply not understood; and the archtecture of the past often gets cruel treatment from those who might be thought ot know better. This book fulfuils a longstanding need, providing a glossary of architecture that is illustrated in a way that the layman can instantly understand. The language of architecture has been almost lost and is vitally important: descriptions of buildings puzzle many of us, however enthusiastic we may be about their visual impact. To understand how styles and details should be described, and their significance, greatly helps the assessment and discussion of the heritage of buildings still around us. The 300 magnificent photographs and drawings are a powerful reminder of the wealth of interest that the study of archtecture can bring, at either casual or professional level." j4.
