Prelude to architecture.
London, The Architectural Press 1925.
8vo. xi+(1)+59+(1)pp, inc. frontis. Publisher’s cloth.
An attempt to deconstruct the meanings of terms commonly used in architecture, by the son of the architect Ernest Newton (President of the RIBA 1914-1917). William Godfrey Newton was born into the architectural world and remained part of its élite (he wrote a short history of the cliquey Foreign Architectural Book Society – intended only for circulation amongst its members – five years later).
