Large folio. 209 + (1)pp, many photo ills and plans. Publisher’s cloth. Ink ownershiop inscription of C.Dickinson. Subsequently Gavin Stamp’s copy, with his booklabel.

Most of this volume is devoted to illustrations and plans of individual buildings by such architects as Powell and Moya, Tecton, Frederick Gibberd, Ralph Tubbs (The Dome of Discovery), and Yorke Rosenberg and Mardall. The volume’s large format gives each building a good deal of dignity, sometimes deserved, sometimes less so.
