The author was an art critic, not an architect, and his book was written too early to take any account of the impact on English architecture of European modernism, but it is not without merit as a survey of what were then considered to be the best examples of buildings designed by English architects during the first quarter of the twentieth century. It also provides short biographical notes on some seventy-five prominent architects of the period.
