Hamilton had been a student of F.W. Hasluck just before the 1914-18 war, and his book on Byzantine architecture is probably the most familiar work on the subject to English-speaking readers, either in the present first edition or in a second edition which followed in 1956. It is clearly written and the photo plates are of the usual good Batsford standard.
