Full Description

8vo. xiv+348pp, photo frontis, (65) photo plates. Publisher’s blind-stamped cloth, spine faded and slightly marked. No ownership inscription, but from the library of the Aberdeen architectural firm George Bennett Mitchell & Son.

A well-illustrated introduction for laymen to the evolution of the English house, beginning with Saxon halls and ending rather oddly with Shaw Sparrow’s observations on modern architects and builders and how to deal with them effectively.
