Full Description

8vo. 2 vols. xxxi + (1) + 634pp, 512 woodcut ills ; xiv + (2) + 642pp, (523) woodcut ills numbered 513-1035. Publisher’s quarter roan, cloth sides, spines slightly chipped at top.

Although issued with title leaves describing these volumes as the first two volumes of the five-volume set of Fergusson’s History of Architecture, the volumes are described on their spines as vols.I and II of Fergusson’s History of Ancient & Medieval Architecture, reflecting the fact that by the 1890s they were being marketed separately. For this edition the text was revised by Phené´Spiers.
