A more or less unchanged reissue of a book first published in 1905 by two working architects, Field (1861-1948) and Bunney (1873-1926), who themselves specialised in domestic architecture in the Wren and early 18th century styles and evidently thought it useful to their own practices to draw attention to the merits of the architecture of this period. The book has today the more lasting value that it records a number of handsome 17th and 18th century houses not featured in other publications.
