Full Description

4to. 352pp, many ills. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. Gavin Stamp’s copy, with his booklabel.

Based on Pevsner’s Mellon lectures in 1970, but encapsulating a lifetime’s accumulation of knowledge – Pevsner had lectured on the subject at Göttingen as far back as 1930 – and equipped with subject bibliographies and notes that are invaluable for future historians of government buildings, theatres, libraries, museums, hospitals, prisons, schools, etc.
