Full Description

Oblong small folio. 56pp, 63 photo ills on plates. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers.

First edition of the text of Summerson’s broadcast talks delivered under this title in May-July 1963 (Summerson’s booklet published under an identical title in 1963 was only a summary of their intended content). Still interesting for Summerson’s frank expressions of opinion on aspects of classical architecture.
