Biographical study of Edward Cresy, who although a practising architect made more of an impact as a writer on architecture and civil engineering. The author, one of Cresy’s descendants, has done some useful research into Cresy’s career, but, as Andrew Saint points out in a preface, much about him remains puzzling.
