Full Description

8vo. 95+(1)pp, photo frontis, 18 photo plates, text diagrams. Publisher’s cloth. Some light, mostly marginal foxing, otherwise good.

First edition of Robert Lutyens’s assessment of his illustrious father and his work, published two years before his father’s death. Anecdotal and occasionally emotive, this was not intended to be a biography or a serious assessment of Lutyens’s architectural legacy, but it provides some interesting background information.
