A manual of the building regulations in force in the City of Liverpool.
Liverpool, “T.Brakell, Printer, 58 Dale Street” 1882.
8vo. 116pp. Publisher’s limp printed cloth. A good copy.
As the author explains in his preface, this helpful little volume, bringing together the provisions of much relevant legislation, was intended “for the use of architects and builders”. The present cataloguer is not aware of comparable publications of this date detailing the building regulations for any other English provincial city, and the existence of the present publication must testify to the extraordinary impetus which Liverpool’s role as a principal Atlantic sea port was then giving to the construction of housing, offices and industrial buildings within the city’s then boundaries.
