A long run of this excellent scholarly periodical, embodying the best of research by historians of British architecture over a forty-year period. It is especially valuable for architecture from 1500 to 1900 (country houses, public buildings, churches, careers of individual architects, debates about architectural style), and the growing professionalism and authority of the contributions to it mark the rise of architectural history as a scholarly discipline.
