Full Description

8vo. 117 + (1)pp, 84 photo ills on plates (including colour frontispiece). Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper. Gavin Stamp’s copy, with his booklabel.

First published in 1944 (the author, a Cambridge academic, had died in April 1944 and both the first edition and the present one were published posthumously). A good example of the Batsford firm’s book production at this period, with well-chosen illustrations of buildings and of other Bath-related images.
