Crook, J. Mordaunt
Victorian architecture. A visual anthology.
New York & London, Johnson Reprint Corporation 1971.
Tall folio. (6)+ii+(3)+300+(7) pp, incl. 300 full-page ills. Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper. Gavin Stamp’s copy, with his booklabel.
An impressive volume reproducing three hundred contemporary full-page illustrations of architect-designed Victorian buildings, taken from The Builder and from other leading British architectural journals of the nineteenth century. The selection, made by Crook himself, is intelligent, and it is not likely that it could be bettered, still less that any publisher of today would issue a hardback volume of this size and nature.
