Robert Mylne architect and engineer 1733 to 1811.
London, Batsford 1955.
8vo. 220pp, 58 ills partly on photo plates. Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper. Gavin Stamp’s copy, with his booklabel.
A necessary tool for architectural historians for its lengthy extracts from Mylne’s diaries, and for its references to the collection of drawings by Mylne which Sir Albert Richardson then possessed, but Sir Albert is chatty rather than enlightening about Mylne’s architectural works and his transcriptions of diary entries are not up to the standards of nineteenth century architectural scholarship, let alone that of 1955.
